You may know Loudoun for its incredible wine and craft beer offerings, or maybe its abundance of history and agriculture. But, did you know that Loudoun’s live music scene is also drumming up a ton of buzz?

That’s right, ladies and gents: today, we’re taking a deep ~jive~ into Loudoun’s music scene. If you’ve ever visited our county, you know that we move to a unique beat — it’s part of the rhythm of the Loudoun lifestyle. And while catching a show is one of our favorite pastimes year round, we’ve got to admit that live music and summertime go hand in hand. Whether it’s enjoying original tunes on a sunny day at a winery or brewery or swaying to classic covers on a warm evening downtown, there are so many ways to make Loudoun the soundtrack to your summer. Come out and experience Loudoun’s booming local talent, and we guarantee you’ll be singing our praises by the time you leave!

Below are just a couple of opportunities to
get your summer playlist rockin’ and rollin’:

Boogie on over to Winery 32 on July 5th and relax by listening to Willie White while watching some spectacular sunset views. Watching the sunset, listening to music, eating delicious food and drinking amazing wine makes for a pretty rockin’ time!
