The performance is the second in a series of September Friday Night live events brought to the Plaza by Barracks Row and Eastern Market Main Streets, Champs, the Capitol Hill BID and the Hill Center as an on-going Plaza activating effort for the benefit of the community.
The schedule for the rest of the month includes performances by Samuel Prather on September 17, and Herb Scott on September 24.
Funding is being provided by the two Main Street organizations and the Capitol Hill BID. CM Charles Allen was successful in providing $150,000 in next year’s budget for programming for the Plaza in FY 2022.
Programming for September will feature more live music for kids and families on Saturday mornings from 10:00-11:30am.
