    The Birchmere is a world-famous concert venue known for a nightly line-up of classic as well as up-and-coming jazz, country, R&B, folk and bluegrass artists in an intimate, relaxed setting.

    With a legendary reputation in the music industry, this Alexandria venue has hosted top acts like Johnny Cash, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Patti Loveless, Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris and Ray Charles. The Birchmere has also played an important role in the discovery of new artists, with the Dixie Chicks and Vince Gill among those who graced its stages on their way to the top.

    To attract the top performers and audiences, the Birchmere sets an intimate tone by keeping the audience close—nestled just two feet away from the stage, and delighting in traditional American cuisine. No seat in the 500-seat music hall is a bad one—or very far from the performers. The venue’s second stage, the Bandstand, provides standing-room only concerts perfect for dancing to every beat in its 1000-person space.
