Local award-winning bluegrass band, The Petersens, known for their tight harmonies and warm sibling humor, have maintained their rank on TripAdvisor as the #1 show in Branson for over a year.


“We are so honored to receive the positive feedback from our fans on TripAdvisor,” said Ellen Petersen, director of marketing and band banjo player. “Bluegrass is all about authentic music, strong vocals and family values. I think many people enjoy our show because our music reminds them of their roots.”


Though many of their fans grew up listening to bluegrass music, The Petersens, one of the younger performing groups in Branson, have succeeded in introducing the genre to a new generation of fans.


“We have a lot of fun putting our own Americana flare on our music so that it appeals to audiences from all walks of life,” said Petersen. “Many people come to our show thinking they’re not bluegrass fans, but they end up changing their minds by the end of the show. It’s a great honor to be a part of making someone a new fan of this music that we love.”


This summer The Petersens continue their ninth season of performing at the Little Opry Theatre in Branson. Through mid-August, they will perform their bluegrass show at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and through July they also perform on Saturdays at 2 p.m. On Sundays at 2 p.m., they perform their gospel show.
