The organisers of Bristol’s Rhythm and Roots Reunion Festival have been giving us holiday season presents.  Each day in the lead-up to Christmas, one artist/group performing at next year’s festival has been revealed and the growing list has plenty of variety and interest.

Bristol is officially recognised as The Birthplace of Country Music.  For it was here in 1927 where Ralph Peer, with the most advanced equipment of the day, began the recording careers of The Carter FamilyJimmie Rodgers and others.  Another event is attributed to the town – the Burger Bar downtown is where, legend has it, Hank Williams had his final meal before his death on New Year’s Day 1953.  Mike Farris calls Bristol a ‘spiritual portal’ akin to the Catskill Mountains.
