Hill Center’s Annual Family Day + Concert
Sunday, September 30, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Celebrate Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital’s 7th birthday on Sunday, September 30! We will have Civil War-era activities and figures, including Abraham Lincoln, a team of coppersmiths and blacksmiths, horse-drawn wagon rides, interactive games and crafts, a magician, face-painting, and balloon animals from Balloons by Brenda. At Hill Center, we like to celebrate our history while looking towards the future!
At 2:30 pm, Turley the Magician, one of the DC’s most renowned family performers, will entertain and dazzle people of ages with his incredible show.
At 4 pm, King Bullfrog will hit the stage with high-energy original, folk and blues songs carefully tailored to get children dancing and delight grownups.
The Gina Clowes Project will perform around 5:15 pm. With an intent to use the banjo as a medium of personal expression, Clowes moves through varied modes of musical treatments. Although she’s known mainly known for her work as the banjo player for Chris Jones and the Night Drivers, she has a long history with her banjo. Born and raised in Front Royal, Virginia, Gina began touring up and down the east coast in her tween years with her siblings, earning countless ribbons from fiddlers conventions, a strong reputation in the regional bluegrass scene, and a stamp from Bluegrass Today as “absurdly talented”. She later played in a number of regional acts (Blue Light Special, New Girls Nite Out, On the Run, Bud’s Collective) and has made her international touring exposure with Chris Jones and the Night Drivers soon after joining the group.
