Fall Concert at historic Lloyd House – Rain or Shine! Tomorrow, October 6 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.


For Immediate Release: October 5, 2016

On Thursday, October 6, enjoy a free live outdoor musical performance by Bob Zentz and Jeanne McDougall on the grounds of historic Lloyd House, located at 220 N. Washington Street. Zentz and McDougall will take you on a nautical trip through a collection of traditional and original maritime songs. With a friendship dating back to the early 1970s, they combine his lifetime of bringing traditional music as “edu-tainment” to students of all ages, with her work as a Ph.D. candidate with a growing reputation for helping restore lost musical “soundscapes” and adding to an understanding of music in a historical context.”

This event will include free tours of the first floor of the Lloyd House, constructed in 1796 by tavern keeper John Wise whose most famous real estate properties included Gadsby’s Tavern.  The guest food truck for the event is “Doug the Food Dude!”  Bring a blanket, purchase a beverage on-site, and share a great fall evening with family and friends.

The Lloyd House houses the administrative offices of the Office of Historic Alexandria (OHA). OHA is responsible for the stewardship and promotion of the historic City through the preservation of the City’s historic and archaeological sites, artifacts and records, and for the use of these resources in accordance with professional standards of scholarship and museum procedures.
