Fodor's Review

A legend in the D.C. area, the Birchmere is one of the best places outside the Blue Ridge Mountains to hear acoustic folk, country, and bluegrass. Enthusiastic crowds have enjoyed performances by artists such as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lyle Lovett, Bela Fleck, and Emmylou Harris. More recently, the club expanded its offerings to include jazz performers such as Diane Schuur and Al Jareau, and blues artists like Robert Cray and Buddy Guy. Tickets are available online.
