The best part of the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is their ability to give local musicians and less well known musicians exposure to a large audience. This helps sustain our music tradition and encourages musicians to continue playing. Just ask Ed Snodderly, Frank Newsome, Michelle Malone or Junior League. Or Scotty Melton, Annie Robinette, The Drunk Uncles, Carson Peters & the Rockhouse Stringband, Kelley & the Cowboys.

Just look at the Grammy award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops who played the festival as unknown musicians and now take center stage.

Bristol Rhythm And Roots Reunion is by far the most reasonably priced event ever. The music is diversified, offering something for everyone to enjoy. I participate in many events each year and I can truthfully say that in my opinion, it's the best. My congradulations to the staff and volunteers for a job well done.

My experience with Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion has been nothing but great! I have both attended, and worked with the staff through our office. BR&RR is the most exciting music event we have in our area, and provides a wide-ranging selection of bands...something for everyone. The only "problem" I see is that I have trouble deciding which stage to go to because I want to see and hear all of the bands/performers, and I can't be in two places at once. This festival should be on everyone's "must attend" list! This festival is a true service to the music community, and lovers of music alike. And it's located in the Birth Place of Country Music to boot.

I had the pleasure of attending the 2010 Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion. It was extremely well run, with activities for a varied audience. The "logistics" of the event were first rate. The entertainment was top notch.

The most impressive aspect was how the BRRR team has engaged the City of Bristol. Throughout the City you would see "welcome" messages. And, the downtown business within the area of the event, we all participating through extended business hours, special storefront displays, and overall friendliness to the folks attending the event.

In addition to a weekend of great entertainment, the BRRR team is now using the information gained from the visitor surveys to improve their marketing and event logistics.

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

Overall, very few changes are noted. Perhaps having a bit more seating for resting and eating would be nice.
