Don Springer and Richard Hood bring decades of experience in old time and bluegrass music to the stage with a show based deep in the roots of bluegrass. Using a variety of instruments (many vintage) and styles, the "boys" perform and explain the music that is the bedrock for today's country and bluegrass forms. Guitars, mandolin, banjos, autoharp, banjeurine, fine expressive vocals, and humorous exchanges with the audience make up a complete (and educational) entertainment package.
The Bristol Brothers have appeared on national TV, on major college campuses, and at arts and music festivals nationwide. A few of their past performances include:
|The Nashville Network||PBS and National Public Radio||Pittsford Canal Days|
|Opryland Hotel||Syracuse University||Borders Books and Music|
|University of North Carolina||Winterhawk Bluegrass Festival||University of Chicago|
|WCNY 91.3 Syracuse, NY Live Bluegrass Show|

Here is a great quote from the Mountain Express in Asheville, North Carolina: "A Bristol Brothers show is a lively, informed trip through old-style acoustic music...not only do the Brothers play like the dickens, they weave stories about the history of the music and the old-time instruments throughout their sets."

Multi-instrumentalist duo The Bristol Brothers Don Springer and Richard Hood ---have championed old-time mountain music and bluegass so long you'd think they started it. These fellas are a piece of Americana that routinely needs to be enjoyed or at least referenced so that musically, culturally, we don't forget from where it is we came. Frank De Blase
