American Roots Fall Lineup!

quicksilver production foundation’s American Roots Concert Series returns for fall 2023

The Quicksilver Productions Foundation is proud to present our 11th season of American Roots music in partnership with Hill Center and with the generous support from our sponsors The Jeanne Phil & Meg Team, Spoken with Authority, Hill’s Kitchen, and DC Brau.

The Quicksilver Productions Foundation works to make the world a more equitable place by building community through music, education, and conversation.

All concerts in this series are FREE, outdoors, and on Sundays from 4:30pm-6:30pm. The series occurs in the Spring and Fall of every year. This year’s lineup includes:

Sunday, August 27th, 4:30pm – 6:30pm: The Wildmans
The Wildmans come from the hills of Floyd, Virginia, in the heart of the Appalachian mountain music tradition. From campsite jamming at festivals and fiddler’s conventions and a college level music education comes the foundation for musical exploration that sets this group apart, taking the audience on a musical journey that reflects the growth and passion of these talented musicians.
Sunday, May 21st, 4:30pm – 6:30pm: Twisted Pine
Released in the Summer of 2020, Right Now is a cosmic map of the new and glistening journeys of Twisted Pine, the Boston-based spacecraft of a band that was once bluegrass but is now “something else, a wider version of a stringband, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.” The Boston Globe
Sunday, October 8th, 4:30pm – 6:30pm: Shamarr Allen
Shamarr Allen is the definition of New Orleans! Hailing from the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, Allen has influences in jazz, hip-hop, rock, funk rhythms, blues and country. He is the lead vocalist and trumpeter of his band “Shamarr Allen & The Underdawgs.”

The concert series will be held at Hill Center at 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington, DC, 20003. To register and read additional information, please visit the links above for the individual shows or go here to see all upcoming American Roots concerts.
