Next weekend Bristol will be packed with concerts for Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion. From September 18th to 20th 130 artists will play all over the city on big stages and small, intimate venues. It’s a great time, check out the lineup here, there are a lot of familiar names there.

Though we can’t be there this weekend, we remember today a great set by our friends down near Galax, the New Ballard Branch Bogtrotters. Check out this great performance from 2010. Eddie Bond is on fire during this set.
