Radio Bristol’s Farm and Fun Time hosts the Piedmont Melody Makers with Alice Gerrard and The Down Hill Strugglers on Thursday, May 11 in the Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.

Farm and Fun Time is a revival of the former WCYB radio program that broadcast from Downtown Bristol in the 1940s through the 1960s. The variety show offers live music, humor, an heirloom recipe segment, and the Appalachian Sustainable Development Farm Report, plus entertaining music segues by house band Bill and the Belles. 
Taking their name from the Piedmont region of North Carolina, The Piedmont Melody Makers play old-time, country, and bluegrass music. The Down Hill Strugglers is an old-time string band based out of Kentucky, Louisiana, and New York. They have released an album on the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings and are featured on the soundtrack to the Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis, which was produced by T-Bone Burnett.
