The Duttons are a three-generation family of musical performers. Committed to appropriate and quality family entertainment, The Duttons are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in their music and business practices.
Besides the flagship business, The Dutton Family Theater, located in live music capital Branson, Missouri, The Duttons are owners of several other successful businesses including The Dutton Inn and Abby’s Tourist Trap. They also tour extensively with their music show and are featured on several national and international television specials.

Whether on television or live on stage, The Duttons are the first choice for an evening of exemplary entertainment!
The Duttons play everything from bluegrass to classical music and everything in between. Their show features a variety of instruments, including violin, guitar, bass, viola, banjo, mandolin, keyboard, harmonica, and drums, among others. The Duttons have garnered awards and recognition in national fiddling contests, classical violin competitions, and as studio musicians.
In addition to their instrumental virtuosity, The Duttons are accomplished singers and dancers and have been recognized as superb vocal talents. Behind the scenes, The Duttons collaborate among themselves and other entertainment professionals to create unique production ideas for their crowd-pleasing show.
Dean and Sheila Dutton (Dad and Mom Dutton) weren’t professional musicians, and they certainly weren’t planning on raising their children as such. But when they realized music was defining their family, they embraced it. Since that moment, The Duttons haven’t looked back and have gone on to enjoy a successful music career. Today, they own their own theater in Branson, Missouri, where they perform over 300 shows a year. They also manage another theater in Mesa, Arizona, where they perform from December through April. The Duttons also do several tour dates throughout the year around the world.
While The Duttons’ musical talent is obvious, what sets them apart from most shows is their ability to connect with audiences. People are fascinated by the all-in-the-family performers whose love for each other and for what they share is unique.
“I, for one, have never witnessed anything like this instant rapport between performers and ticket buyers – and I’ve been attending concerts for almost six decades,” said critic Mike Kerverlas of the Sumter, S.C. Item. “In short, The Duttons are showmanship personified.”

“I wanted to see a variety of shows. This show was amazing. The whole family has so much talent. Great variety of songs and music. The show was great.” 5-star Tripadvisor Review
“Virtuosity, versatility, creativity served up with a generous dose of energy and humor: this is The Duttons. A three-generation ensemble, from the founding couple to 31 grandchildren, nearly all appear on stage, and all deserve a separate mention. But at the top of the list is Amy and her violin. When she gets on a roll, from Bluegrass to classical or both (yes, it's possible) you’ll forget to breathe.” 5-star Tripadvisor Review
