Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked closely with Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion for the past two years, producing the "Virginia Folklife Stage." I work with about 10-15 festivals per year. This is clearly one of the very best. It showcases a wonderful creative and diverse array of musical styles, and succeeds in reaching a broad audience. The programming at the festival is consistently top notch, and there is a real, concerted and thoughtful effort to compliment the music with educational initiatives, providing a truly intimate experience for the visitors.
To me, though, the greatest thing about this festival is the way it engages the entire business community, with stages in practically every restaurant, coffee shop, storefront, and tavern. It truly is a festival for and by the community!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I do much fieldwork and cultural documentation throughout Southwest Virginia, and thus know first hand the social, emotional, and economic impact of this festival.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Gain more resources for support staff. The festival is largely the work of a few individuals. While there is a dedicated group of volunteers, it would be wonderful if they could raise the funds to really increase the capacity and size of their staff.

We have never been to a better run, more efficient, and clean music festival than the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion. Every single person we met in the organization was EXTREMELY courteous and helpful in every way. There was absolutely no garbage that wasn't picked up and the clientele acted in a genteel manner throughout the show.
