River Town 2022

A summer celebration of Roots and American music

Text reads

Saddle up as River Town returns for the first time in three years for a summer programme of roots and country music.

Presented by Bristol Beacon, River Town brings an unparalleled programme of country, blues and roots music, performed by global icons and rising names.

So pull up a chair and settle in for some whiskey-soaked, barn-storming live music mined from the rich seam of the American roots tradition.
