The Town of Leesburg is bringing back its popular Acoustic on the Green following a COVID-related hiatus last summer.
The free, summer series will have a new location this year, but one very familiar to longtime Loudoun music fans. The shows will be held on the courthouse lawn instead of the Town Green, providing more room for the audience to spread out.
The courthouse lawn can be viewed as the county’s first outdoor live music stage—long before the winery boom or popular music venues like B Chord Brewing Company or MacDowell’s took root. For several decades, the courthouse lawn was the location of Sunday evening shows put on by the Bluemont Concert Series and attracted the largest crowds for live music.
This year’s concert series features many familiar faces and some new additions to the roster:
- June 5 – Chris Bowen
- June 12 – Robert Mabe
- June 19 – Justin Trawick and the Common Good
- June 26 – Lisa Fiorilli
- July 10 – Cal Everett
- July 17 – Liz Springer Duo
- July 24 – Roam Like Ghosts
- July 31 – Torrey B
- August 7 – Gary Smallwood
- August 21 – Julia Kasdorf
- August 28 – Todd Wright
Concerts will begin at 7 p.m., are free, and are open to the public. No smoking, alcohol, or pets are allowed. Lawn chairs and blankets are advised. In case of inclement weather, the show will be canceled.
