Enjoy the Sounds of Country Music’s Past 

Bill and the Belles

In the summer of 1927 dozens of hopeful musicians converged on Bristol, Tennessee in response to a call from Victor talent scout Ralph Peer.

Often considered the “big bang” of commercial country music, the Bristol sessions launched the careers of two superstar acts, the Carter Family and Jimmy Rodgers, and produced invaluable recorded documentation of the early days of country music. The spirit of those heady times can be experienced at the White Horse Black Mountain on Friday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m when Bill and the Belles.

Bill and the Belles play alongside America’s top roots music artists as the house band for the historic radio program Farm and Fun Time presented by Radio Bristol and the Birthplace of Country Music. Lifelong musicians Kris Truelsen (guitar, vocals), Grace Van’t Hof (banjo, banjo uke, vocals), Kalia Yeagle (fiddle, guitar vocals), and Karl Zerfas (bass) bring to the stage an uplifting show unlike any other, full of humor, high spirits, and good times.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 advance/$12 doors, children half price.
