In 1927, Ralph Peer’s journey to Bristol, a sleepy town tucked away in the mountains of Northeast Tennessee, seemed somewhat unremarkable. With the simple goal of recording the sounds of the Appalachians, few would have predicted that Peer’s trip would herald a seismic shift in modern music, becoming what many call the Big Bang of country music.Now, the third week in September serves as a reminder of Peer’s mission, which opened the world’s ears to such luminaries as The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers, among many others. The Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion draws music fans from around the globe to celebrate Bristol’s role in the birth of modern country music.This month’s Trail Mix features artists performing at the Reunion, taking place September 14th-16th.Leading off the mix is a track from Folk Soul Revival, easily one of the favorite bands in the Southwest Virginia/Northeast Tennessee region and long a festival darling. “D’Railed” comes from the band’s latest record, Prompting The Dapperness.Featured are brand new tracks from Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Angel Snow, Zach Deputy, Uncle Lucius, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Tift Merritt, James Justin & Co., Cahalen Morrison and Eli West, Spirit Family Reunion, Anthony Keys, Humming House, and This Mountain.Also in the mix are tunes from Dale Jett & Hello Stranger, A Great Disaster, Chris Rose, Sol Driven Train, Eric Brace & Last Train Home, Pert Near Sandstone, William Walter & Tucker Rogers, The Grass Cats, and Paper Bird.This mix is representative of the diverse line up of the Reunion.

Buffalo Sabres fans received some unwanted news ahead of Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers: the team’s captain and leading scorer, Jack Eichel, will not play due to an upper-body injury, the team announced just prior to puck-drop.While the cause and extent of his injury are unknown, the Sabres were forced to go to battle without their most lethal weapon. Eichel was originally slotted in the starting lineup, but the late change drew Conor Sheary into the game instead. Conor Sheary will replace Jack Eichel in the lineup tonight. https://t.co/GhWTe0iE8x— Buffalo Sabres (@BuffaloSabres) December 20, 2019The Buffalo News’ Mike Harrington speculated on Twitter that Eichel had “been feeling lousy for several days. Particularly hoarse during his pregame presser Tuesday in Toronto. But #Sabres announced upper body is why he’s out. They would have said illness if it was the flu.”Following the 6-1 loss, The Athletic’s John Vogl reported that head coach Ralph Krueger was “very strange” when discussing Eichel’s injury.”It was something that evolved in warm-ups, so we‘ll just look at the situation and get back to you tomorrow on that. . . Let’s not speak about the specifics right now. We’ll fill you in once we’ve assessed the situation,” Kreuger said.Sporting News: All-Decade team | NHL Athlete of the decade Eichel’s 50 points (24 goals, 26 assists) lead the team by a wide 18-point margin. The Massachusetts native’s outstanding performance this season also places him fifth on the NHL leaderboard. He ranks second in the league in goals behind Boston Bruins forward David Pastrnak (28).Unfortunately, the forward’s 17-game point streak will officially come to a close, per the league, as streaks are measured in consecutive team games played.Buffalo (16-13-7) has dropped its last two meetings and sits 11 points behind Boston for the division lead with 39.
