If you are planning to go to Bonnaroo (and care enough about music to have found this blog), I assume that everyone knows the first 10 to 15 lines on the bonnaroo artist lineup. So, my intention here is to give you a number of daily blog posts heading up to the festival introducing you (and myself for some of them) to the “bands at the bottom of Bonnaroo”. One of my favorite things to do at festivals is to avoid the huge crowds for the bands I’ve seen a dozen times, and to wander through the lesser known stages to find the gems of tomorrow. Maybe we’ll bump into each other there!
Tristen has been a touted singer/songwriter since moving to Nashville to focus on her music career in 2007. She is a staple at some of our beloved Nashville venues like The Basement, The End, and Mercy Lounge. She will be performing at The On Tap Lounge on Saturday from 9:20-10:10 PM. She will also be playing at The End in Nashville on May 28th with Holly Golightly, so make sure you go check that out to cure the end of Bonnaroo blues.
Check out the session that Tristen and the Ringers did for Daytrotter here. More information is also available on the Bonnaroo website. Below are a couple of songs that you can download for free from Tristen’s website in support of her new full-length album Charlatans At The Garden Gate.
