For the sixth year in a row Listen Local First D.C. is teaming up with The 9 Songwriter Series to present a holiday spectacular featuring some of our most talented DMV musicians performing their favorite holiday tunes! Listen Local First D.C. (LLF) is a local music initiative devoted to building awareness and creating opportunities for local musicians to raise the profile of D.C.’s local music scene. LLF supports Fair Trade Music principles and has been working with local government agencies and officials to establish a permanent D.C. local music taskforce to advocate for musician specific interests within the broader creative economy.
