Local news: Bluegrass and jazz festivals come to Washington
Festival season is almost upon us. With Bonnaroo, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Coachella, and SXSW all right around the corner, two upstart festivals are launching in the Washington area that should help you save money on airfare and sunblock. (This is still a recession, people.)
First up is the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival. It'll be held at the Hilton in Rockville from February 19-21 and will feature performances from Paul Carr, Bobby Watson and many others. Visit www.midatlanticjazzfestival.org for tickets or more information.
Then, the first annual D.C. Bluegrass Festival kicks off on Saturday March 27 at Langley High School in McLean. The festival will host performances from Mountain Heart, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Bill Emerson & Sweet Dixie as well as music workshops, craft vendors and more. Check www.dcbluegrassfest.org and keep your eyes here on Click Track for future updates.
