Welcome back to the annual preview for the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion held on September 20th, 21st, and 22nd 2019! It appears we’re going to have another year with temperatures hotter than hell and even less parking, but thank God for cold beer and water!

The 2019 festival is definitely the weekend for the undercards on the lineup— not taking away from the main headliners, but they stacked the lineup with the great talent of established, rising, and developing artists. Since last year’s list was so well received, our staff put even more hours into listening and researching this year’s artists for our Spotify playlists and our staff’s top 15 must-see list.

We were ecstatic to see Ruston Kelly on this year’s lineup, alongside Dillon Carmichael, who will appeal to fans of Jamey Johnson and Chris Stapleton. Of course, we are always excited to see Beth Snapp and Ray Wylie Hubbard returning to the festival. Beth’s music is like the comfort food of Folk/Americana music and Ray Wylie will get you singing and tappin’ your boots— can’t go wrong either way.

Anyways- enough rambling from us— you’ll have to go out there and give these artists a listen yourself! We’re off to enjoy some Lincoln Road cold brew and Southern Craft’s legendary bbq tater-tots, to try some fried green tamater pakoras from the Pakalachian and to pay a visit to our neighbors at the Angry Italian! [One bite, everyone knows the rules.]

Until next year, be sure to check out our latest album release from Mark Webb Jr, ‘Smoke Wine Banter,’ and join our mailing list to stay tuned for upcoming releases from Gold Ship artists, new merch and news!

Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion 2018 Preview


Well, it’s that time of the year again where football is back, it’s still hotter than hell, and Christmas comes early in Bristol in the form of Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion! Festival weekend is always our favorite weekend of the year (minus the bad chicken on a stick year), especially having the 6th Street stage right outside our front door.

Our staff has seen many amazing artists over the years since our birth in downtown Bristol, and this year seems to have another fantastic lineup. This festival season has the buzz and excitement turned up to 11 with a lineup featuring artists such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Taj Mahal Trio, Railroad Earth, The Felice Brothers, and so many more.

After listening to hours and hours of music from artists playing this year, we’ve decided to compile a staff pick list of must-see artists and a couple of wild cards. If you’re needing some musicians to fill your schedule at this year’s festival, check out our list below. Don’t forget to head over to Spotify and follow our latest playlist full of Bristol Rhythm and Roots 2018 musicians.

We look forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces this weekend! Stay tuned for an overall review of Bristol Rhythm and Roots, including food reviews.
