At least on a per capita basis, the DC metro area must offer one of the highest levels of arts and cultural programming in the country. Remarkably, many of these can be enjoyed completely for free. Fairfax County sponsors the Spotlight by Starlight concert series at Mason District Park, with performances by both local and national touring artists. Not only are these concerts completely free, they are funded entirely by private donations.
My latest delightful journey there took me to see Americana songwriter Radney Foster.
