Act of Congress
This singer song writer group from Birmingham, Alabama plays only acoustic instruments giving them a unique sound that resonates with audiences both here and around the world. Act of Congress has completed five tours as Cultural Ambassadors in the American Music Abroad Program that is produced by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. They have also opened for Toby Keith, John Mayer and Edwin McCain. They have an organic sound that combines hook-laden melodies and compelling songwriting. Dave Higgs of NPR – “One of the freshest sounding, exuberant bands in all of the known acoustic universe.” Here at the Herndon Festival we are thrilled they are in our universe Friday night on the Parkway Stage.
