Radio Bristol Presents: Farm & Fun Time, a live radio show at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum on Thursday, November 10, at 7:00 p.m., with guest performances by Dom Flemons and The Sunny Mountain Serenaders.

Hosted by Kris Truelsen and featuring musical breaks by house band Bill and the Belles, the program also features the Appalachian Sustainable Development Farm Report with Corbin Hayslett, an heirloom recipe segment that’s more storytelling than instruction, and much more!

About Dom Flemons
Dom Flemons is the “American Songster,” pulling from traditions of old-time folk music to create new sounds. Having performed music professionally since 2005, he has played live for over one million people just within the past three years. As part of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, which he co-founded with Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson, he has played at a variety of festivals spanning from the Newport Folk Festival to Bonnaroo, in addition to renowned venues such as the Grand Ole Opry.

About The Sunny Mountain Serenaders
The Sunny Mountain Serenaders feature three of the most accomplished, steeped-in-the-tradition old-time musicians you’ll find anywhere. Mark Campbell, who was raised in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, has won many ribbons at Southern fiddle contests, including 1st Prize at Clifftop in 2001. Native Virginian Mac Traynham, who plays banjo and harmonica and sings lead with the Serenaders, may be best known for the soulful tight-harmony duets that he sings and plays with his wife, Jenny. John Schwab is the guy who literally wrote the book on playing old-time backup guitar. He’s anchored the rhythm sections of several fine bands, including The Hoover Uprights, who took the blue ribbon in the traditional band contest at Clifftop in 2001 and again in 2003.
