Another weekend in Loudoun is fast approaching, and it looks like there may be some more winter weather in the cards. The greater Washington DC area has a reputation for overreacting to a bit of snow, so I think it's time we show all the New Englanders that we won't let a little dusting ruin our weekends! Shake off the cabin fever and check out some these great Loudoun offerings.

Dry Mill Road CD Release Party

They offer a good mix of traditional music and “not so” traditional takes on Led Zeppelin, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles…to name a few. The band brings a full-blown entertainment experience to the stage with some very different blends of old, new, traditional, surprising twists and turns of musicality and phrasing.
