This place started out 40 years or so ago showcasing primarily bluegrass and country acts. Its calendar now offers more range, stretching from Maysa & Her Jazz Funk Soul Symphony to John Hiatt. Located in Alexandria, 8 miles and a $20 cab fare from downtown D.C., the Birchmere is well worth the trip. The hall seats 500 and serves food.
