Farm & Fun Time ft. Carson Peters & Iron Mountain, The Brother Brothers
July 12, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$30
Carson Peters & Iron Mountain, The Brother Brothers July 12
Live Variety Show at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum
Bristol, VA/TN, (June 21, 2018) Young Carson Peters has wowed audiences at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and the Grand Ole Opry, and also made national TV with NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey. To us, this precocious Piney Flats, Tennessee native is one of the brightest examples of how we “grow” young musicans in the traditions of Appalachian music here in our region and an exciting addition to the Farm and Fun Time stage in the “acoustically perfect” Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. Carson Peters and his band Iron Mountain share the twin brother duo of Adam and Davis Moss, a.k.a. The Brother Brothers. Some may remember the harmonious Americana act from their performance at last year’s Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion as they took to the stage as part of the 90th anniversary tribute to the 1927 Bristol Sessions.
“We’ll be coming back with a bang for July’s show with two diverse acts that illustrate how roots music like bluegrass and folk are in good hands with the next generation of pickers and singers,” said Farm and Fun Time producer and host Kris Truelsen. “The Brother Brothers will soon be touring nationally with acclaimed band I’m With Her, so this is a great chance to see them here in Bristol. This is a show not to be missed!”
Farm and Fun Time takes place on Thursday, July 12 at 7:00 p.m. EST at the museum; doors open at 6:30 p.m. EST and guests are asked to be seated by 6:50 p.m. Tickets to be part of the live studio audience are $30 plus tax and fees.
Farm and Fun Time features a variety of segments including jingles written and performed by house band Bill and the Belles, a farm report, an heirloom recipe segment, and nationally touring artists. A revival of the former WCYB radio program that aired from downtown Bristol in the 1940s and 1950s, Radio Bristol’s Farm and Fun Time is original programming the entire family will enjoy.
