Her musical family includes brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche.
She continues to write, sing and perform live.
She has written musical compositions for theater and dance, and continues to teach at many master songwriter series and workshops.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show.
Tickets are $25 ($15 for students with current school identification) and will be sold at the door (cash or check).
North Gate Vineyard will sell wine by the glass and goodies prepared by It’s a Peace of Cake will be available to purchase during the event.
The performance is co-sponsored by the two stewards of the historic building: the nonprofit Hillsboro Community Association & Friends of the Old Stone School which manages the Old Stone School, and the Town of Hillsboro which owns the historic building.
The two are working to raise funds for significant repairs and renovations needed for the building which has been named a “Legend of Loudoun County.”
