Washington, D.C., is not the first place that comes to mind as the center of folk and bluegrass music, but there’s a long history of accomplished players from the capital city, including Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, who honor their peers on the recent album, C&O Canal. The Grammy-nominated collaborators’ engaging songwriting, quick wit and masterful harmonies highlight this ode to “the Birchmere back then” and its extensive music community.

Friday, September 30. $15-18, 7pm. Prism Coffeehouse at C’ville Coffee, 1301 Harris St. cvillecoffee.com.
