Each spring, the flowers bloom in East Tennessee with the help of some April showers and a little bit of sunshine. This April, the sunshine might also brighten a few faces and cause some toes to tap as mountain music virtuoso EmiSunshine lights up the stage at the historic Paramount in downtown Bristol on Saturday, April 28th at 7:30PM. A native East Tennessean, this 13-year-old has taken the music world by storm with her expertly crafted lyrics that are all at once heartfelt and haunting. An equally accomplished musician, she picks out melodies on the guitar, mandolin, and ukulele that are every bit as whimsical as the words she sings.
With numerous national festivals and TV appearances under her belt, including previous performances at Bristol’s own Rhythm & Roots Reunion and an upcoming appearance on NBC’s Little Big Shots, EmiSunshine is destined for a place among the stars.
Also joining Emi will be award winning country comedian Etta May. Whether she’s headlining the Southern Fried Chicks Comedy Tour or sharing her distinctly southern brand of humor on Oprah, Showtime, CMT, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC, Columbia Pictures, NBC, or SiriusXM (to name a few), the “Polyester Princess” is always guaranteed to bring the laughs with a hefty dose of Kentucky truth and wisdom.
Tickets for EmiSunshine with special guest Etta May go on sale Friday, February 2nd at 12 noon. Seats are priced at $20 and $25, with an extremely limited number of VIP seats available for $100, which also include a meet and greet, CD, autographed laminate, and a photo with Emi.
