Meanwhile, the Alexandria Times interviews Iris Dement about her upcoming show this Monday:
I love the Birchmere. I’ve been playing there just about every year since 1992. It’s a great environment. It’s a world made for music. The sound is wonderful. The audience is always really warm. It’s a good place to play.
