Special Exhibit: Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Through Your Eyes

August 11 — October 21

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion had its beginnings in 2001 with a few thousand people, nine stages, and around 100 bands. Today the festival has grown to encompass all of Historic Downtown Bristol with over 45,000 festivalgoers, 19 stages, and almost 150 bands.

The fans and festivalgoers are the people who truly make Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion special, and this juried exhibit features a unique view of the festival through the lenses of their cameras. Based on submissions from a community call-out, dozens of photographs were chosen by three professional photographers and brought together into one exhibit. Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Through Your Eyes highlights images of bands and musicians, buskers on the street, festivalgoers enjoying all the Bristol Rhythm has to offer, and more – a chance to see the festival through our fans’ eyes and to celebrate the festival experience.

The exhibit will be in the Special Exhibits Gallery of the Birthplace of Country Music Museum from August 11, 2018 to October 21, 2018.
