'Fields Of Gold' Performance From The Petersens

'Fields Of Gold' Performance From The Petersens

One of our favorite bluegrass bands, The Petersens, come together for an incredible performance of ‘Fields Of Gold.’

The iconic song was written and recorded by Sting for his 1993 album, Ten Summoner's Tales.

“You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold
So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields of gold”

The Petersens are a family band from Branson, Missouri. This bluegrass ensemble has traveled all around the world sharing their musical talents, but you can easily find them at home in Branson.

For ten seasons, The Petersens have performed at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex. Today, they’re coming together for a bluegrass rendition of the fan-favorite ‘Fields Of Gold.’ For member Julianne this is an extra special song because it was “the first song Julianne learned when she switched from just coming up on stage to do one song as a kid to being our full-time mandolin player.”

“I never made promises lightly and there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left we'll walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold”

During these troubling times in our world, it’s so comforting to see a family coming together and sharing their musical talents. What a great performance!
