Correspondent Tom Wilmer visits with the stars of the musical group War and Treaty, Michael and Tanya Trotter at the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Music Festival in Bristol, Virginia.

Come along and discover how their childhoods were imbued with singing gospel in church, and music permeating their childhood homes. Most touchingly—how the effects of Michael’s stint in the U.S. Army on the battlefields of Iraq continues to influence his passion for music and honoring veterans.

Rolling Stone Magazine, commenting on War and Treaty’s debut album in 2018, “joyful relentless title track, reminiscent of Ike and Tina Turner rock-infused soul.”

Listen to War and Treaty's latest hit songs on Spotify.

Intro and outro music underbed from War and Treaty’s new album Lovers Game.
