BRISTOL, TN/VA (WJHL) – More than 100 artists and vendors will line the streets of Downtown Bristol for Bristol’s Rhythm and Roots festival this weekend. A weekend filled with music, vendors and activities for everyone to enjoy.
Country star Loretta Lynn who was expected at the festival cancelled her appearance due to an injury. CEO of the Bristol Chamber of Commerce, Beth Rhinehart said the ticket policy doesn’t allow for refunds but the festival ticket covers all of the artists.
“I looked online and their policy is a no refund policy, when you have things like that happen that’s something that’s out of everyone’s control, obviously we are very sad to see Loretta Lynn has had health issues and we wish her all the best,” Rhinehart said.
Bobby Bare is set to replace Loretta Lynn while she continues to recover from her injury.
