RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019

RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019

Bristol’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a music and art festival held every 3rd weekend in September on the state line between Tennessee and Virginia. Since we’ve lived in Bristol for the last 7 years we’ve been quite a few times and seen incredible headliners and talented artists from all over the world.

Our trip to New York City was in honor of my friend Hannah’s upcoming nuptials but she was kind enough to let us go inside Ladurée to sample their infamous macarons.
