Final Fall Concert of the Season at Historic Lloyd House! – October 20, 5 to 7 p.m.

The GrandsonsThis Thursday, October 20, enjoy another free live outdoor musical performance on the grounds of historic Lloyd House, located at 220 N. Washington Street.  The Grandsons performance will be a lively exchange of humor, fun, musical riffs and moving feet between band members and audience.  A fan aptly described The Grandsons exuberant sound as “American music in a blender with the lid off.” The more prominent elements in this eclectic whirlpool are New Orleans rhythm and blues, rockabilly, swing and country two steps.

This event includes 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.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Pack a picnic dinner, bring a comfy chair, 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.
