Tuesday Tunes: The Pollocks + Songwriter Showcase

August 14, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Front Porch, in partnership with James Monroe’s Highland, will host the 4th annual Tuesday Tunes, a three-part series of sunset concerts at the home of President James Monroe. These performances are a perfect opportunity to bring the family out with blanket and chairs in tow to enjoy music from Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region! Tuesday Tunes is a free concert series.

For our final Tuesday Tunes of the season, come out and enjoy The Pollocks! We will start the evening with a songwriter showcase featuring:
Orion Faruque
Angel Sands Gunn
Caroline Gunn
John Kelly
Emily Julia Kresky

It’s not a complicated process- you turn on the machines, plug in and give up your ghost. Then again, there’s the job, sickness, breakups, jealousy, hangovers, weather… So through thick and thinner, we keep cranking out the widgets- flushing money down the toilet and swan-diving into the madness of it all. We play shows. We reflect. The songs pile up…
