The Petersens: Branson’s Bluegrass Show

“The Petersen Family Bluegrass Band” is the entertainment family that delivers family entertainment of the very best kind! The four siblings accompanied by their mom on the bass have been performing together for over a decade . You’ll marvel at their pickin’ and playin’ expertise on the banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and the bass and rhythm guitars, and you’ll be completely enchanted by their vocals. Every single member of the family is a standout; however, it was Ellen on her own who scored a golden ticket in the 2015 season of American Idol. She might have competed as a solo artist, but Ellen Petersen describes her time in Hollywood as a ‘group’ effort; two of her siblings came along to help her prepare for performances, reinforcing that this is truly a family act!

“The Petersen’s” show shares the timeless music of traditional bluegrass artists, as well as more contemporary fare from artists who frequently pop up on the charts. You’ll hear songs made famous by Allison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Bill Monroe, and Doyle Lawson, among others. They will also do featured numbers from their original Bluegrass album released October 2017. In addition to great bluegrass, they’ll treat you to a cappella gospel, fiddle tunes, and even a yodel or two! You may arrive a stranger, but you’ll definitely leave this show feelin’ like one of the family, courtesy of “The Petersen Family Bluegrass Band!”
