Fairies Make Their Home in Historic Downtown Bristol with New Public Art Project


Believe in Bristol, along with several participating small businesses, are excited to introduce a new public art project in Historic Downtown Bristol: Fairy Doors.

What is a fairy door, you ask? It is exactly what you would expect: a miniature door designed for fairies to come and go as they please. The fairy door art project came to the Believe in Bristol Promotions Committee after a team member saw a story on the success of a similar public art project in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Coordinated through Believe in Bristol, the Main Street program for the downtown district, businesses were encouraged to get creative and design a door to be installed on the exterior of their business. The committee wanted the downtown businesses to have a say in the personality of their fairy doors, and those who have participated have embraced the project – from a musically-inspired cottage entrance at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum to a hand-fired pottery fairy door at Kil’n Time. What might sound like a silly idea is actually an integral piece of community engagement, one that will encourage locals and visitors to explore our downtown. The fairy doors project is also part of a year-long public art series in Historic Downtown Bristol TN/VA with other projects planned for later in the year.

“Arts and culture are proving their power as economic and social catalysts,” says Maggie Bishop, Executive Director for Believe in Bristol. “Arts-based placemaking is an integrative approach to urban planning and community building. Plus, it’s a fun, and unexpected, addition to our arts and entertainment focused downtown.”

Doors will continue to be installed by Believe in Bristol through-out the summer months. For more information, please contact Maggie Bishop at Believe in Bristol at 423-573-2201 or info@believeinbristol.org.

BPL Anime Theater: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

June 7 | Bristol Public Library


In The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Makoto is having a horrible day. She was late for class, flunked a test, had a terrible mishap on campus and, just when she thought her day couldn’t get worse, her brakes give out on her bike, sending her careening in front of a passing train—and that’s when Makoto discovers she can leap backward through time. Suddenly, tests become a piece of cake and embarrassing situations are a thing of the past and she can enjoy her favorite meals whenever she wants! Unfortunately for her friends and family, her time traveling is causing significant problems and, if Makoto wants to stop something truly bad from happening, she’ll have to find a way to fix the timeline before it’s too late.

Robot Rickshaw, Onyx Ashanti and Kevin Spears

June 7 | Elderbrew


Join Elderbrew for an amazing night of experimental, and inventive music that must be seen to believe.

Hailed by many as one of the best kalimba players alive today, Kevin Spears musical gifts have astounded audiences around the world and rewritten what is possible on this exotic musical instrument.

Playing since the age of 10, Spears' takes the kalimba, a traditional African instrument and masterfully weaves horns, bass, violins, synths, drums and world percussion to create an incredible folk/world/funk jazz orchestra that will leave you spellbound and dancing all the same. Experiencing Kevin live is like witnessing Jimi Hendrix, Herbie Hancock and Les Paul rolled into one, pure and simple.

For over 15 years, composer Troy Rogers' creative work has focused on the development and exploration of robotic musical instruments as generators of new musical possibilities. As a musical robot maker, he co-founded Expressive Machines Musical Instruments (EMMI), a group of composers dedicated to exploring and expanding the potential of robotic musical instruments. As a Fulbright scholar, he spent time at the Logos Foundation in Ghent, Belgium working with Godfried-Willem Raes and what is perhaps the world’s largest robot orchestra, where he developed a singing vocal robot, Stemmetje. Living the life of an early 21st century semi-nomadic robot herder, he resides in Duluth, MN when not touring the country in the RoboRig, a mobile platform for the development and dissemination of music for robots. He performs on streets and stages alike as Robot Rickshaw. Rogers is also a committed independent educator, regularly presenting lectures and offering Making Music with Robots and STEAM education workshops at universities, galleries, community art centers, makerspaces, and schools throughout the US.

Onyx Ashanti: Since being introduced on the worldstage by way of a fortuitous TED talk he did in 2011 entitled “This is Beatjazz”, Mississippi native, Onyx Ashanti, has been evolving at a pace that surprises even him. Musician, Programmer, 3d print-designer, writer, performer, inventor...a self described child of the internet, and disciple of the open source philosophy, Onyx has spent the last few years creating a multidimensional expression concept called beatjazz.
Beatjazz is “beats” and “jazz”, or more specifically. Beats are electronically derived rhythm and jazz as improvisational sonic investigation create an improvisational sonic construct for investigating rhythm, harmony and melody interactively. This is expressed as sound and performance but also as projected visualization, light color sequencing, robotic parameter feedback and CAD design-multiple dimensions of a singular expression. A hyper expression.

By 2011 the convergence of of cheap technology, crowd funding, internet based learning resources, open source hardware and software and online shopping and research allowed Onyx to create the first beatjazz controller-a body-worn 3-way wireless network (two hand units and a mouth unit) that was played like a saxophone except that the head and hands were free to move in any direction. All the movement and playing is sent to a computer running custom software, which translated it into musically relevant information. By 2012 he had integrated 3d printing into the process. And by 2013, the software became fractal, which means that each thing that gets added, evolves. Nothing stays the same. Beatjazz modelled on biological process.

If Birds Could Fly

June 9 | Bloom Cafe & Listening Room


Three kids from the mountains of Southwest Virginia that love to make music.

Rodney Crowell with Special Guest Jedd Hughes

June 9 | Paramount Bristol


TICKETS: Rodney Crowell has been doing this for a while. His record-making, dates back to 1978 (when he released Ain’t Living Long Like This), peaked commercially a decade later (with Diamonds & Dirt, which yielded five number-one country hits), and has only grown in sophistication and power in recent years. He is also a fiercely lyrical and personal songwriter, which has attracted the attention of everyone from Bob Seger to Keith Urban.

Fifty years after Crowell first started playing as a teen in Houston garage bands, he still believes in the power of songs, and the responsibility of singing them. “The interesting thing about that garage band back then is that we would go from ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ by the Beatles to ‘Honky Tonkin’’ by Hank Williams. In southeast Texas those songs fit side by side. ‘Drinkin’ Wine Spo-de-o-dee’ went right next to ‘Crossroads’ by Cream. That was the beauty of it, that all of that existed side by side.” Crowell finds himself going back to that music, but also going even earlier. “Recently, I think—I hope—that my study of the blues is starting to show up in my music. Those artists, whether it’s Lightnin’ Hopkins or John Lee Hooker or the acoustic Delta players, connected to something fundamental. With that in mind, I’m trying to move forward but also get back there.”

Victor Lawson and Boogie Chillen are among the talented bands in the burgeoning blues scene in the Tri-Cities.

Bristol Historical Association presents Dr. Charles Sydnor of Emory & Henry College

June 11 | Bristol Public Library


Dr. Charles Sydnor now serves as Senior Staff Historian of the Virginia Holocaust Museum (VHM), and was previously its President and Executive Director. He also served for six years as the Major Gifts Officer in the Institutional Advancement Division of Emory & Henry College — his alma mater and the institution he served as President from 1984 to 1992. Dr. Sydnor's professional journey has been along a varied career path, with history always at the center as the red thread connecting each of his career stops.

Dr. Sydnor graduated from Emory & Henry College, earned his MA and PhD degrees at Vanderbilt University, and then was a DAAD Fellow at the University of Freiburg, Germany. He returned to the US and taught modern German and modern European history. In 1980, he moved to Hampden-Sydney College as Assistant to the President, and then came to Richmond in January 1982 to serve as Executive Assistant and Speechwriter to Governor Charles S. Robb. From the Governor's Office, Dr. Sydnor returned to Emory & Henry as President, only the second alumnus to serve as President of his alma mater in the 20th century. In 1992 he left Emory & Henry and became President and CEO of Commonwealth Public Broadcasting Corp. in Richmond, where he remained until his first retirement in May 2006. In July 2006, he accepted a joint teaching appointment as a Visiting Professor at both Longwood and Hampden-Sydney, and then returned to Emory & Henry, retiring a second time in May 2013. In June 2013, Marcus Weinstein, Chairman of the Board of the VHM, called to ask him to once again serve in an executive position with the Museum.

Dr. Sydnor is a well-known historian in the fields of modern German history and the history of the Holocaust. His dissertation, Soldiers of Destruction: A History of the SS Death's Head Division, 1933-1945, was published in 1977 by the Princeton University Press. He served on the Virginia-Israel Commission created by Governor Gerald L. Baliles, as Chair of the Education and Holocaust Education Committee. From 1982 until 2006 he also served as an Expert Witness for the Office of Special Investigations in the Criminal Division of the US Department of Justice, testifying in de-naturalization cases against former SS concentration camp guards who obtained US Visas and/or American citizenship fraudulently by lying about their wartime service as SS perpetrators. Eventually, 23 SS guards were either de-naturalized or deported, in large part as the result of his testimony, affidavits and expert witness reports.

From 1995 until 2003, Dr. Sydnor was a guest commentator on the History Channel in a series of programs known as Movies in Time — mostly films about the Second World War. During those same years, as CEO at Commonwealth Public Broadcasting, he was responsible for the production or acquisition of a number of documentaries about the Holocaust, and served as Executive Producer for national PBS programs about Thomas Jefferson and the D-Day landings at Normandy — the latter documentary earning the Edward R. Murrow Award from the television academy of arts and sciences. In 2005 he was inducted into the Virginia Communications Hall of Fame.

Dr. Sydnor's experiences in community service have been equally extensive. He served on the Boards of Trustees of the Virginia Historical Society, the George C. Marshall Foundation, the Center for Digital History at the University of Virginia, and the Library of Virginia Foundation. He also served for ten years as a Trustee of the Library of Virginia, and was Chairman of the Board in 2005-2006. He was an original Trustee of the Virginia Holocaust Museum at its founding in 1997, and served as Chair of the Board from 2003 until he returned to southwest Virginia in the summer of 2007 to join the Development Office at Emory & Henry.

Now, at age 74, he hopes to see the Virginia Holocaust Museum position itself as one of the country's premier research institutions in which scholars and students may research the documents and histories of the Holocaust as experienced by its perpetrators, its victims, and its bystanders.

Terry Baucom’s Dukes of Drive

June 11 | Birthplace of Country Music Museum


A native of Monroe, North Carolina, Terry Baucom has enjoyed a career in music that started in 1970 with Charlie Moore and continued over the years as a founding member of ground breaking bands like Boone Creek (with Ricky Skaggs and Jerry Douglas), Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, IIIrd Tyme Out and more. Winner of the 2013 IBMA Recorded Event of the Year for “What’ll I Do,” Baucom currently tours with his own band, Terry Baucom’s Dukes of Drive.

His single “The Rock” finished 2015 as Bluegrass radio’s most played song on the Bluegrass Today chart. The band’s current Top 10 single “Around The Corner” is recieving heavy national and international airplay. In 2008, Deering Banjos introduced the Terry Baucom Signature model banjo, while the Dunlop company also uses Baucom as an endorser, offering Terry Baucom custom sets of banjo strings. A testament to his influence is evident when you listen to countless younger generation banjo players who use Baucom signature licks and emulate his driving technique. In addition to playing on numerous recording sessions and producing instructional materials, Baucom teaches banjo, both privately and in camp and workshop settings.

The Dukes of Drive consists of Joey Lemons from King, North Carolina, on mandolin and vocals; Will Jones of Cana, Virginia, on guitar and vocals; and Joe Hannabach of Pfafftown, North Carolina on bass.
