Emily Henry featured at IOTA Open Mic

IOTA's open mic show every Wednesday is my favorite free event in Clarendon. It's always exciting not knowing who will perform or what genre of music they will bring to the stage. Everyone gets to play two songs, and those range from acoustic guitar covers, original songs with mandalins and violins, to singers and rappers.

This past Wednesday IOTA also added a featured musician in the middle of the open mic slots: the very talented Emily Henry. The  Fredericksburg native acoustic/folk singer caught everyone's attention and played about six songs for the crowd, including her hit "Las Vegas". She was a tough act to follow for people scheduled after her! I am very much looking forward to seeing her perform again at IOTA sometime.
