Mary Chapin Carpenter. Dave Matthews. Vince Gill. Linda Rondstadt.
What do these notable artists have in common?
They have all performed at Del Ray's The Birchmere, which hosts shows almost every night, with a varied mix of music and other live performances. Long considered a favorite stop for many musicians who like the intimate environment and audiences who frequent the club, there is table seating, a dinner menu, as well as beer and cocktails.
The Birchmere, which is located at 3701 Mount Vernon in the Del Ray area of Alexandria, has a full schedule lined up for December, including Phil Vassar and Judy Collins.
And if you're looking for performances to put you in the holiday mood, check out "A John Waters Christmas" (okay, okay, admittedly his take on Christmas is way different than mine, but, hey, different strokes, right?) or Judy Collins' Christmas Show.
If you are looking for something a little more traditional, you may want to check out Jrennifer Knapp and Margaret Becker's acoustic 'The Hymns of Christmas Tour' on the 17th, featuring reverent and memorable hymns.
Take a look at The Birchmere's calendar; there is something for every one and every taste this holiday season.
