American Roots Returns!

American Roots Concert Series Spring 2023 Lineup

Hill Center is proud to present a series of American Roots music with the help of the Quicksilver Productions Foundation. QSP 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, May 7th, 4:30pm – 6:30pm: Jill Andrews
“The way that Andrews sings about love and the way she looks at love, it must be love. The beautiful and pained songs that she writes are the kinds of episodes that you have as a student. She is a scientist of them, turning them over and around, figuring out where the bottom dropped out and what’s going to happen next.”Daytrotter

Sunday, May 21st, 4:30pm – 6:30pm: Oh He Dead
Oh He Dead hails from Washington, D.C., and is quickly garnering national attention. Lead singer CJ Johnson, “maneuvers her powerful voice — a combination of Stevie Nicks and Tracy Chapman” (NPR) in rhythm with the band’s “infectiously groovy” and “sublime instrumentation” (NPR) to create an “infectious and soulful sound” (Washington Post).

Sunday, June 4th, 4:30pm – 6:30pm: Kaleta & Super Yamba Band
“…it doesn’t take the group long to take their sound from easy crowd-pleasing to an absolutely outrageous combination of Brooklyn and West Africa that’s ready to burn down the house.” PopMatters

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.
