The fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down with Celebrate Virginia After Hours. This is an ongoing, live music festival throughout the summer that you definitely don’t want to miss. There is a different headliner every time and tons of events to look forward to.

Listen to Jake Owen on June 3rd

Jake Owen may be a country musician, but he doesn’t necessarily follow the “typical” country rules. He keeps it hip by experimenting with new sounds and giving audiences exactly what they need. Over the years, Owen evolved as a singer and songwriter. You probably recognize many of the songs he wrote or co-wrote, such as “Lost in This Moment” by Big & Rich and “Why” by Jason Aldean. You can bet his performance in Fredericksburg will include recent hits he wrote and sings. This includes those on his CD “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.” Keep your eye out for featured special guest Hunter Phelps.

Enjoy Live Music with Hank Williams Jr.

Celebrate Virginia After Hours continues on June 17th with the unmistakable sound of Hank Williams Jr. His lineup will include songs from his latest album, “Old School, New Rules.” Not slowing his game any, Hank’s creativity has been stronger than ever in recent years, recently gaining inspiration from the state of affairs in the country. Of course, you can count on an occasional classic song from Hank Williams Jr. during his performance. After all, in 1982, he had nine albums on the music charts from Billboard and has continued turning out hits.

Check Out Ziggy Marley’s We Are the People Tour

As part of his “We Are the People Tour,” Ziggy Marley will be stopping in Fredericksburg to perform at Celebrate Virginia After Hours on July 15th. Marley is more than just a humanitarian, producer, singer, and songwriter. He also has won an Emmy and six Grammy awards. Maybe it’s in his genes with inherited talent from his father, Bob Marley. His most recent album is “Fly Rasta,” and you will likely get to hear some of the songs from it performed live at the amphitheater.
