Major Venues on The Crooked Road

Bristol's famous Music Sessions took place in 1927 – the “big bang” for country music recording. The Birthplace museum immerses visitors in the sounds and stories of Bristol's music history. Bristol's music continues most nights in restaurants and clubs along State Street and swells to fill the city during the Rhythm and Roots Reunion in September, when three days of concerts, jams and performances bring thousands of music lovers to more than 20 stages up and down Bristol's main street.
