Our Historic Venue

The first country music recording, known as the Bristol Sessions, earned Bristol the title of the Birthplace of Country Music. Following Ralph Peer's successful field recordings in Bristol in 1927, he returned in October 1928 to conduct another recording session. For nine days, from October 27 through November 3, Peer set up in a building about a block east from the original recording site, on the second floor of a building at the corner of the alley which now runs beside the Paramount Center For the Arts. It's now the home of our catering and party venue.
