As part of its Rhythm Road cultural diplomacy project, the U.S. State Department sends musicians all over the world to perform American music for foreign audiences. The Hoppin' John String Band, which plays traditional Appalachian tunes, and the Ryan Cohan Quartet, which performs modern jazz and blues, are among the next groups to ship out. But before they do, they're teaming up for an after-work concert at National Geographic.
The Ryan Cohan Quartet takes the stage at 6 p.m.; the Hoppin' John String Band follows at 7:15.
