Live acoustic music from various genres (folk, blues, country, Americana, and originals written by the musicians) will be provided by Acoustic Wheelhouse, Justin Golden, and Doug Mock.
Various state and local Democratic politicians are expected to attend. Confirmed attendees include Virginia’s 7th District Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger and two new candidates for the state House of Delegates, Blakely Lockhart (Va.

Invitations have also been extended to U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, plus all Democratic candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General.
