“Great live music can be found year-round in Loudoun County, but during the steamy summer months, residents and visitors are encouraged outside to lawns, pavilions and gazebos to get their aural fix.

Most Wednesday evenings from June through August, clusters of families and friends can be seen gathering on blankets, in camp chairs or, if they arrived early enough, posted up comfortably at one of One Loudoun’s umbrella-outfitted tables, enjoying snacks and taking in the chill sounds of a given week’s performer.
