Live Music

Alexandria’s mid-coast location makes it a prime stop for touring country, folk, rock, and blues musicians. Music lovers delight in concerts outside throughout the summer, including Alexandria Live Music Week, and in historic spaces year-round. Musicians entertain nightly in bars and restaurants like the supper club-style Grille at Morrison House, and for decades, the Birchmere has drawn adoring crowds for stars like Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
