The Petersens: Branson’s Bluegrass Show

The Petersens are an award-winning bluegrass band in their eighth season of shows at the Little Opry Theater 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 of 2017. 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 Theater and The Petersens will make any audience feel like a part of the family.


New Show Schedule for 2018

The Petersens are changing their show times to 2 PM Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday and adding a special twist by having their Sunday show be all gospel bluegrass music. The Tuesday and Thursday shows will continue to be filled with a mixture of bluegrass, gospel, and original songs.
