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 as well as a bunch of other online concert listings for your to explore. 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!

Upcoming Shows











The Kennedys' '69-'67 Beatles Livestream Special!

The Kennedys

This is the final installment of our four-part Beatles mini-series: Episode Four --The songs of 1969 and 1970! This will include songs from "Let it Be" and "Abbey Road"! This final installment of The Beatles' oeuvre came at the end of a tumultuous time in America, so it makes sense that, as we close the book on yet another trying chapter in our history, and we usher in a hopefully kinder and more loving era, we do so with some of the Beatles' deepest and most complex and healing songs. Please join us, Sunday, January 24, 2021 at 2pm Eastern (NYC) Time.

Live from Edmonton, AB, Hamilton, ON and Teer, North Carolina – Three great songwriters who’ve worked and played extensively together as co-writers, fellow travellers and when-not-at-home troubadours perform songs they’ve written with each other, for each other, and on each other.
