Bristol Rhythm, a.k.a. The Reunion, is the kind of music experience where all who enter become alumni and everyone is considered family. With more than 20 stages covering seven blocks on and around State Street, folks come for the line-up, but Historic Downtown Bristol is the real star. No muddy fields, lots of shelter from the elements, and it’s all about the music. Real, authentic live music that will shake you to your very soul. Since 2001 Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion has delivered an eclectic mix of folk-rock, Americana, jam grass, bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, and Piedmont blues in a hometown setting. We offer musician’s musicians and artists who have taken our region’s sound to new levels of greatness. We honor Bristol’s history at the Birthplace of Country Music in a way that’s vintage but not antique.
