Alexandria After Work Concert Series

Martha Burns is singing old-time American folk songs the old-time way on July 12

Aalexandria, VA – Join the The Folklore Society of Greater Washington (FSGW) and The Office of Historic Old Town Alexandria each second Friday of the month for a concert. Locations will rotate between Lloyd House (220 North Washington Street), and the Alexandria History Museum at The Lyceum (201 South Washington Street).

Friday, July 12, 2019, 6-8 p.m., at Lloyd House features Martha Burns singing old-time American folk songs the old-time way. Heart songs, cowboy songs, tragic ballads, and comic ditties – songs from the mountains and songs from the range. Songs from the earliest period of recorded country music and songs never sung in a studio. Her haunting voice is perfectly suited to her old-time repertoire. An accomplished guitarist, Martha’s accompaniments bring out the pith in a song.
