Coming to you this week from the Filene Center, located in Wolftrap National Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna, Virginia, we’ll walk barefoot in the grass, toss a Frisbee, and stare into the sunset as an aviary choir sings in the background.
Special guests include, Bluegrass firebrands Old Crow Medicine Show, the heavenly voice of Jearlyn Steele, Blue Ridge troubadours Robin & Linda Williams, and perpetual optimists the Hopeful Gospel Quartet. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, and much more, this Saturday from Virginia.
