Nashville’s Music Row and New York’s Tin Pan Alley are hundreds of miles apart, but between them they’ve produced the lion’s share of America’s greatest songs. From Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family through Hank Williams and Loretta Lynn to Kris Kristofferson and Taylor Swift, country music has shaped the way Americans see the world. Now Tennessee Walt offers a fascinating musical exploration of this often-overlooked slice of America’s musical heritage.

Starring Gayden Wren as Tennessee Walt, this informative, tuneful tour through our country’s musical heartland will have your audience laughing one minute, crying the next, and tapping their toes throughout.

Tennessee Walt’s The Other Great American Songbook is available throughout the greater New York area and beyond for all of 2017.

Tennessee Walt’s
Bristol & Beyond: The Birth of Country Music

It’s Country Music’s Birthday – Time for a Party!

featuring songs by
Jimmie Rodgers | The Carter Family | Johnny Cash | Kris Kristoffersson
and many others

Can a whole genre of music have a birthday? Well, country music does: The so-called “Big Bang of Country Music” took place in Bristol, Tennessee, from July 25 to August 5, 1927. The “Bristol Sessions” launched the careers of America’s first two enduring country stars,  Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family, and kicked off a boom that has made country America’s most popular music to the present day.

Tennessee Walt’s Bristol & Beyond: The Birth of Country Music is a perfect way to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Sessions. A one-man concert featuring two dozen songs from country’s greatest songwriters, the program traces country’s roots from pre-Bristol days down to the present. Between songs, your audience gets historical context and funny, revealing anecdotes about the songs and the men and women who wrote and recorded them.

Tennessee Walt’s Bristol & Beyond is available throughout the greater New York area and beyond for all of 2017.
