Baldknobbers, Branson Tradition
For 100 years, Branson has been entertaining visitors with its authentic Ozarks hospitality and down-home fun. One of America's best novels, "The Shepherd of the Hills," portrayed the Ozarks as a place of natural beauty. After reading this classic book, tourists wanted to see this almost legendary region in Southwestern Missouri. The rest is history. Although much has changed in the past 100 years, Ozarks tradition and values remain strong and welcome you with open arms.
Branson's first show, the Baldknobbers, is an important tradition in the Ozarks. The Mabe Family has entertained folks in Branson since 1959 and is one of the must-see shows for new and returning visitors.
Four generations of Mabes put on an outstanding show, playing both country classics and new hits along with gospel and make you laugh-out-loud with comedy. "We truly believe that healing through laugher is important and there is not much in life you can't laugh at and with a family as big as our, there is always lots to laugh about," said Tim Mabe, comedian and show's producer.
Baldknobbers are expanding their legacy in 2007. Legendary gospel and country singer, Barbara Fairchild returns to Branson in November and December to present her gospel matinee show. "I love Branson and can't wait to be back. Christmas season just isn't the same without Branson," says Barbara.
