Owner description: The Petersens are an award-winning bluegrass band in their eighth season of shows at the Little Opry Theatre. The Petersens give audiences a taste of the authentic Branson music scene with their refreshingly all acoustic show. In 2015, the band received international attention when banjo player, Ellen Petersen, competed in the singing reality TV show, American Idol, and placed in the top 48. This February The Petersens were recognized nationally by the bluegrass community when they competed in the International Bluegrass Competition in Nashville and were awarded fourth place. The family has toured throughout the United States, Canada, and recently completed their second international tour to Ireland in July. Audiences will be entertained as the band performs bluegrass standards, gospel favorites, original music, and are sure to laugh at the sibling humor on stage. The intimate setting of the Little Opry Theatre and The Petersens will make any audience feel like a part of the family.

As their name implies, they are a family Bluegrass/Gospel Band that does an excellent job performing both their own music and that of others.It was very easy to see that they love their craft and take great joy when one of the family performs a singing or instrument solo. The brother, who acts as the spokesman for the group, keeps things with good-natured jabs at his sisters to lead into songs, as well as encouraging the audience to shout "Git it Mama!", for his bass playing Mother. A fun time.

We found this family as we were planning our Branson trip and thought they would be fun to see. We definitely were not let down! We loved them and the kids loved them. I think the kids got inspired to pick up the instruments they already have and make some progress. And Katie I agree with you. . . . Alison Krauss is the best!! (with just a slight edge over George Strait:) We'll be seeing you again next time we come to Branson.

Very talented family. They have written some of their own music which was very nice to listen to. Our family definitely believes it is worth the afternoon to come see them.
