The Petersen Family Bluegrass Band
Enjoy this patriotic tribute to God and country with the Petersen Family Bluegrass Band, a talented family of bluegrass performers and musicians. This group is in its seventh season of performing in Branson and is currently performing in the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.
This award-winning family of six will stun you with their musical abilities and naturally blended voices in this 1.5-hour show full of family entertainment. With beautiful harmonies and a top-notched bluegrass sound, the Petersens will win a place in your heart as they perform traditional standards of artists like Bill Monroe, Doyle Lawson, and Rhonda Vincent, as well as contemporary artists like Alison Krauss and Balsam Range. The family also adds twin fiddle tunes, gospel a capella, original songs, and yodeling to their talented musical performances!
The family moved to Branson in 2007 after Jon Petersen, the father, retired from the Air Force, and they have appreciated Branson for its love of God, country, and acoustic music. They love to contribute to the family atmosphere with shows full of faith, family, and fiddle tunes! This gifted family will dazzle you with their many instruments, including the mandolin, rhythm guitar, banjo, bass guitar, and fiddle, as they perform a variety of bluegrass and gospel favorites while blending their voices and instruments to create a patriotic and inspirational harmony.
Join Jon and Karen and their four lovely children, Ellen, Katie, Julianne, and Matthew, for a performance that will wow and inspire you. Even as they work together to give you an outstanding performance, they still manage to provide audiences with a look into each of their own unique styles, showing you family entertainment at its best. Enjoy the combination of Katie's fiddle, Ellen's one-of-a-kind banjo, Matthew's and Jon's rhythm guitars and basses, Julianne's fantastic vocals and fiddle, and their mother Karen's mandolin for a complete bluegrass sound. Ellen is even a contestant on Season 14 of American Idol, where Harry Connick Jr. applauded her subtlety and proclaimed that she made him proud to be an American.
This all-American family will give you the entertaining and enthralling bluegrass performance you desire. Let the Petersen Family Bluegrass Band take you on a musical journey, complete with traditional bluegrass and gospel music and a fun-loving, musically-talented family show.
