Join FSGW for some great music at the Cider Week Virginia festivities in Old Town Alexandria! A hard cider tasting with more than a dozen Virginia cideries is accompanied by food trucks, tasting lectures, fall activities, and live music by the Cigar Box String Band, Massive Donut and Sibling Rivalry sponsored by FSGW. Historic Lloyd House is at 220 N. Washington Street, just off the FREE trolley line from King Street Metro station.
The Cigar Box String Band is a Tidewater Virginia quintet that plays folk Americana from land and sea on both commercial and homemade instruments - yes, cigar box guitar, as well as banjo, fiddle, bones, flute, and washboard. Massive Donut is a family-friendly acoustic blues lineup of regulars from the Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation weekly jam sessions who first got together to kick off the family stage at the FSGW Midwinter Festival. And Sibling Rivalry is a Celtic fiddle quartet whose members' ages don't quite add up to 50.
