The Petersens are an award-winning bluegrass act in their 10th season of performances at the Little Opry Theater at the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex. The Petersens give the audience a taste of the authentic Branson music scene with their refreshing acoustic show. In 2015, the band gained international attention when Ellen Petersen, who plays the banjo, took part in the singing reality show American Idol and entered the top 48. Bluegrass Competition in Nashville and placed fourth. The family has toured the United States, Canada and recently completed their second international tour of Ireland in July. The audience will be entertained as the band perform bluegrass standards, favorite gospels, original music, and are sure to laugh at the kindred humor on stage.
It was about time they covered this John Denver classic! Their dad actually grew up in West Virginia and some of our fondest childhood memories take place in those hills. Not to mention, John Denver is a family favorite. We hope you enjoy “Take Me Home, Country Roads” as much as we do!
