It just makes perfect sense: old-timey, finger-picking, giving-it-their-all bluegrass players on one of the area's most historic monuments: the USS Potomac.
On June 8, the ship will host a foot-stomping bluegrass concert. Sit, or more likely, dance outside under the stars to fiddlers, banjo players, and throat-busting singers, as they romp through their original tunes and traditional classics from the American songbook. This concert is part of the Pickin' on the Potomac concert series.
The Potomac opens for tours at 6:30 pm. The concert goes from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm.
Welcome aboard! The Floating White House was originally commissioned the USCG Cutter Electra in 1934. In 1936 it was renamed the USS Potomac and served as Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Presidential Yacht until his death in 1945. More than a quarter of a million people have visited and sailed aboard the former President's beloved USS Potomac, since it opened to the public in the summer of 1995.
