Branson’s Bluegrass Show

The Petersens are an award-winning bluegrass band from Branson, MO. They are in their seventh season of shows and currently perform at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex. 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. 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, 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.
