News and Announcements
March 19, 2020
There have been numerous developments this week regarding social distancing and the Covid19 virus. Bars, restaurants small meetings have all been restricted by Maryland Governor Hogan. I think we all expect more to come. It is in the best interest of our Friends of the Barbershop (FOBs) to follow the intent of the governor and help to keep everyone safe and free of the virus. The Barbershop will be CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FOR ALL ACTIVITIES.
All spring concerts
These are unprecedented waters we are navigating and we will be reevaluating the situation regularly. As soon as safely possible we will reopen.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
The Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation is keeping acoustic blues traditions alive. Through weekly Saturday jams, performances, workshops, exhibits, and lectures, AEBHF carries on the educational mission of celebrated Piedmont blues artist Archie Edwards.
Archie Edwards (1918-1998) was a barber, teacher, storyteller, and master of the Piedmont style of blues guitar. “Archie’s Barbershop” in Northeast Washington, DC, was a gathering place where generations of musicians and friends came to listen to and learn the music.
Continuing a tradition that began more than 50 years ago by Archie Edwards at his barbershop, AEBHF hosts an acoustic blues jam every Saturday afternoon. Musicians of all skill levels are welcome, and many music lovers stop by just to listen.
