The D.C. Bluegrass Festival will be held at the Sheraton Tysons Hotel, located at 8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons Corner, on Feb. 27 and 28 with a lineup of national and regional bluegrass outfits.

Dobro legend Jerry Douglas and The Earls of Leicester are headlining the show on Saturday, Feb. 28. Another act on the bill are D.C.’s own Seldom Scene, roots powerhouse Tim O’Brien, Blue Highway and mandolin phenom Sierra Hull.

Instrument workshops, music and craft vendors and lots of informal jamming will be featured at the family-friendly festival. “We’re bringing a whole outdoor bluegrass festival inside,” said Randy Barrett, president of the D.C. Bluegrass Union.

“We’ve put together a killer lineup to make this both a must-see local event and a destination festival for fans from across the country.” For more information, visit
