Alexandria doesn't just attract visitors in search of an incredible getaway; it also draws in musicians, both locally-known names and chart-toppers, looking to share their craft with lively audiences at music venues, restaurants and historic sites. The Legendary Birchmere Music Hall has housed top musicians Johnny Cash, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Ray Charles, as well as many other artists on their journey to fame. At the Grille at Morrison House, enthusiastic crowds swoon to live piano tunes as they dine on classic American bites, giving new meaning to "dinner and a show."
