Trail Mix September 2012

get more from BRO

In 1927, Ralph Peer’s journey to Bristol, a sleepy town tucked away in the mountains of Northeast Tennessee, seemed somewhat unremarkable.  With the simple goal of recording the sounds of the Appalachians, few would have predicted that Peer’s trip would herald a seismic shift in modern music, becoming what many call the Big Bang of country music.

Now, the third week in September serves as a reminder of Peer’s mission, which opened the world’s ears to such luminaries as The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers, among many others.  The Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion draws music fans from around the globe to celebrate Bristol’s role in the birth of modern country music.

This month’s Trail Mix features artists performing at the Reunion, taking place September 14th-16th.

Leading off the mix is a track from Folk Soul Revival, easily one of the favorite bands in the Southwest Virginia/Northeast Tennessee region and long a festival darling.  “D’Railed” comes from the band’s latest record, Prompting The Dapperness.

Featured are brand new tracks from Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Angel Snow, Zach Deputy, Uncle Lucius, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Tift Merritt, James Justin & Co., Cahalen Morrison and Eli West, Spirit Family Reunion, Anthony Keys, Humming House, and  This Mountain.

Also in the mix are tunes from Dale Jett & Hello Stranger,  A Great Disaster, Chris Rose, Sol Driven Train, Eric Brace & Last Train Home, Pert Near Sandstone, William Walter & Tucker Rogers, The Grass Cats, and Paper Bird.

This mix is representative of the diverse line up of the Reunion.  Check out the complete line up and schedule at www.bristolrhythm.com!
