Alie and Stephen Coakley — who will accompany on piano and vocals — will cover classics, a few show tunes, and some acoustic favorites arranged for piano.

In addition, Alie and Stephen have performed at First Friday Leesburg, 8 Chains North Winery, Dry Mill Winery, and at the Purcellville Music and Arts Festival.
