Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion will host a Press Conference on Thursday, May 19th, 2011 at 11am inside Theatre Bristol, 512 State Street. The public and media are invited to attend this momentous event, as BRRR reveals the line-up for BRRR 2011, unveils its 11th Annual Poster, divulges information about special events, and discusses logistical changes to this year's festival.

The Reunion will not communicate any further information about headliners at this time, but will say Saturday's Walling Distributing Piedmont Stage will amaze and astound with a certain genre-bending act who has been embraced by the likes of Eric Clapton, BB King and Dave Matthews — and whose latest album was produced by T. Bone Burnett.

"This year Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion's music committee was also committed to bringing fresh new music to the festival. Several of our headliners reflect that, but we're known for our up-and-coming artists. We feel we've topped ourselves with some really amazing new faces that audiences will be hearing a lot more from in the future," says BRRR Executive Director, Leah Ross.

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is adding incentive for the public to attend Thursday's Press Conference by offering a one-time-only discount on weekend passes and annual posters exclusively at the unveiling.

Weekend Passes to BRRR 2011 will be sold at Thursday's Press Conference for the discounted rate of $35 (regular $40 until August 31st). 2011 annual posters will also be available for purchase at the Conference, discounted at $5 (regular $10). These rates are only available to purchasers at the May 19th Press Conference, so take advantage!
