Bristol is known as the birthplace of country music, known for the original auditions of The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers in 1927.
Ron and Nancy OneSong play vintage Americana music, including country, bluegrass, western and gospel. They have performed at many venues in the Bristol area and have been featured on several television broadcasts of the Mountain Music Showcase, hosted by Jim Edwards. The couple recently opened for Dale Ann Bradley, five-time female vocalist of the year, and this summer, will be opening for Michael Twitty, in a memorial tribute to his father, Conway Twitty. The OneSong duo has performed at the Ryman Auditorium and the Nightlife Dinner Theatre in Nashville, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, and have entertained internationally in Canada, France and England.
During the past decade, they have been featured at events, throughout the Northeast, including the Oswego HarborFest, the New York State Fair and the Lumberland Cultural Series in the Catskills. They have played alongside Tommy Cash and have opened for many other national artists, such as Roy Rogers, Jr., John Anderson, Stonewall Jackson, Mickey Gilley and Yakov Smirnoff.
Ron and Nancy OneSong are the former owners of the Medina Stone Farm. They have recorded five acoustic albums and are members of the New York State Country Music Association Hall of Honors. They have published an autobiography of their early music career, “Stories of OneSong.”
The Concord Town Hall is located at 86 Franklin St. in Springville and is handicap accessible. There is a charge for the concert, and tickets can be purchased at the door.
