Alison Krauss, Brad Paisley Will Perform at White House

Alison Krauss & Union Station and Brad Paisley will participate in the White House Music Series in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday (July 21). Krauss and Paisley will take part in an afternoon educational workshop with 120 middle and high school students from across the nation. Among them will be 40 students from the W.O. Smith/Nashville Community School of Music, an institution that provides music lessons to deserving children from low income families. Tuesday night, Krauss and Paisley will perform for President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, as well as White House staff and members of Congress. The series celebrates the arts and the importance of arts education. It launched last month with a focus on jazz and will continue in the fall with classical music.
