http://www.dumplinvalleybluegrass.com/index.htm

Blogger Ted Lehmann wrote this about Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival on his blog:

"Located conveniently just off I-40 at the exit for Sevierville, it combines a convenient setting, indoor stage in what was once a milking parlor for the dairy farm that once produced on the property, full hookup sites as well as water and electric, and plenty of rough camping. Festival promoters Joe and Mitzi Soward are warm and welcoming hosts. Coming back to Dumplin Valley each year feels a lot like a family reunion."

Donna and the band are thrilled to have been asked back for a second year in a row!

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion

State Street-Bristol, TN/VA
423-573-3898
http://bristolrhythm.com/

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion isn't just a music festival. It's an infectious, three-day music experience, bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul. Every third weekend in September, State Street in historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is amped to the beat of Appalachia's past, present, and future. It digs down deep into the roots of traditional Appalachian sound and lifts its' branches to new heights; and it all happens in the heart of The Birthplace of Country Music. It is, and isn't, your Daddy's country music. It's hardly strictly bluegrass. It's not a rock show, but it totally does. And if you've never been, you'll never know how much. Don't miss Donna and The Poor Mountain Boys and the rest of the amazing talent that is always in the lineup in Bristol!
