Presenting and Supporting Folk & Acoustic Music
in the Washington, DC Area

We're certainly living in uncertain times - but one thing remains true: artists and musicians will FIND A WAY and Focus Music would like to assist that as much as we're able.

Share and Enjoy!

Enjoy and SUPPORT!!!

Below is a selection of upcoming shows from Focus alumni and to the right is a bunch of links to explore on your own. With almost any show there will be the option to support the artist financially, but remember to "Like", "Share" and "Follow" too! Join those mailing lists for when these artists are able to come see us again!
