Organized by the Birthplace of Country Music non-profit organization, Bristol Rhythm & Roots continues its mission of inclusivity in 2023 with a lineup of artists that is approximately 46% female or includes at least one female in the group. In celebration of the trailblazing women who came before them, the BCM Museum has unveiled a special new exhibit, “I’ve Endured: Women in Old-Time Music“.
The new exhibit at the museum, located steps away from a main entrance to the festival, celebrates pioneering female musicians including Mother Maybelle and Sara Carter, Ola Belle Reed, Elizabeth Cotten, Lily May Ledford, Hazel Dickens, Etta Baker, and Alice Gerrard. The display connects the success of those iconic artists to today’s musicians like Rhiannon Giddens, Molly Tuttle, and 2023 Rhythm & Roots performer Amythyst Kiah. Tickets for the Birthplace of Country Music Museum are sold separately.
Tickets to the 22nd annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion are on sale now.
