Evenings on the Ellipse: Eilen Jewell
The Office of Chairman Sharon Bulova wants to invite you to come by Evenings on the Ellipse after work. Thanks to our corporate sponsors, Evenings on the Ellipse is a free and family-friendly concert series we are able to hold each summer. Concerts take place in the back yard of the Fairfax County Government Center (or inside of the building, if the weather chooses not to cooperate). Audience members can bring chairs or blankets, enjoy fresh food from the Farmer's Market (which happens to be in the Fairfax County Government Center parking lot during concerts), taste wine from local vineyards, and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. What better way is there to kick off the weekend?
As hard as it is to categorize Jewell's musicterms like alt-country, roots-rock, country-noir, and Americana get used a lotit's even harder not to become thoroughly enraptured by the singer/songwriter's powerful versatility, musical stories, and images. And that gorgeous voice makes you feel like she's singing just for you, out on the breezy back porch or by a crackling campfire. She does so much, so well.
