Review for BRISTOL RHYTHM AND ROOTS REUNION, Bristol, TN, USA
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!
