Meet your speaker:
Adam of Nashville Standard

Adam has been a full-time professional musician for all of his adult life and currently performs over 400 live shows each year for various public and private events in the northern Virginia area. Adam's love and deep respect for traditional popular and roots music started at an early age, as he grew up studying not only the music, but also the history behind the music of the vintage entertainment eras. Excited to convey this history to his audience, Adam’s enthusiasm is refreshing in an illuminating presentation.
