Cross Kentucky, roots rock/Americana

Come celebrate American roots music - Americana and folk, country, blues, jazz, and even rockabilly—with the return of our popular summer concert series in the Garden!

Between pedal steelist Bobby Birdsong’s swelling lines, lead singer Ken Wenzel’s saxophone solos, and guitarist Mark Williams’ carving leads, Cross Kentucky bridges the gap between classic and modern rock and alt-country. Cross Kentucky plays at venues throughout the DMV, from top local clubs, to concerts at The Hamilton in Washington, D.C., to outdoor festivals like the Tarara Vineyards Summer Concert Series, and special events such as the World Police and Fire Games. Whether playing well-received songs from their album ...Beneath Potomac Skies or fun covers of classic roots-rock tunes by artists well known and loved, they put on a good-time show.

Please note: Limited seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis or bring your own blanket or chair.

TIMES: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
