Mid-week in Washington D.C

There are two great shows scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of this week for those living in the Washington D.C. area. To the south, Doc Watson is performing two consecutive nights at the The Birchmere starting Wednesday August 25th. You never know how long this legend will continue touring so this is a great opportunity to hear this extraordinary flat-picking. And to the north, Paul Thorn brings his americana-gospel sound to the Rams Head Onstage where he will be playing classics like "800 Pound Jesus" or something from his latest, Pimps & Preachers. Opening for Thorn is a very entertaining blues artist, Patrick Sweany. Sweany was selected by Roy Book Binder to play at Doc Watson's Merlefest in 2009 on the "The Greatest Acoustic Blues Show on Earth" ticket. The guy can play.
