The Congressional Blues Festival is one of Washington D.C.’s premier annual music events. Past headline acts include top artists such as Levon Helm, Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and more. Bill Wax, XM radio deejay, said it best as this festival presents “a lot of shades and reflections of the blues”. The Congressional Blues Festival is dedicated to giving back to American Roots music and has partnered with organizations like Music Maker Relief Foundation and with The Blues Foundation. Over 1 million dollars has been raised and donated to these charitable organizations.

This year the musical lineup was the incredible Robert Randolph & the Family Band, guitar legend Bobby Parker, the powerful Sol & Funk Root, and the spirited Howard Gospel Choir. The crowd was lined up in anticipation to get inside the National Building Museum, to hear all the great musical acts and enjoy the food and drinks included with the ticket.
