Paramount Center will host advance Ken Burns COUNTRY MUSIC screening
May 19, 2019
East Tennessee PBS, in partnership with the Paramount Center for the Arts and ETSU’s Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music program, will present an advance screening of Ken Burns’ “Country Music.”
Burns kicked off a promotional tour of his new documentary in Bristol in March, accompanied by producers, writers and musicians. The film will premiere as an eight-part miniseries on PBS and focus on the development of country music, beginning with the 1927 Bristol Sessions that introduced the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers to a wider audience.
An advance screening will be held for the public at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 18, at the Paramount Center on State Street in Bristol. The event is free, but due to limited space, attendees must reserve tickets online by going toparamountbristol.org.
A special pre-show will accompany the screening with performances from ETSU’s students in the bluegrass program. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
