Overview
More
The Petersens are an award-winning bluegrass band in their eighth season of shows at the Little Opry Theatre. The Petersens give audiences a taste of the authentic Branson music scene with their refreshingly all acoustic show. 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. This February The Petersens were recognized nationally by the bluegrass community when they competed in the International Bluegrass Competition in Nashville and were awarded fourth place. 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, original music, 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.

Great music at very affordable price in a small theater where there is not a bad seat. Good wholesome family entertainment with guest interaction. We saw the gospel show. Would love to see what this talented family has to offer for their bluegrass show.

The Petersen family puts on an excellent show. This is a "must see" if you enjoy the Blue Grass genre. The whole family is incredibly talented!! Looking forward to what their future holds.

These young people play and sing beautiful bluegrass music while smiling and having fun. It all makes for a great show. Highly recommend you see this one. It is the only show in Branson we have seen three times.
