The Petersen Family Bluegrass Band
“The Petersen Family Bluegrass Band” is the entertainment family that delivers Branson family entertainment of the very best kind! Mom and Dad Petersen, accompanied by their son and three daughters, share exceptional bluegrass favorites as well as some of their original material. 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” Branson 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. 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!”
