The Anacostia River Festival is a premier event of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The eighth annual festival is a celebration of Anacostia River, Park, and Neighborhood. The festival will present a series of musical performances from a main stage honoring the history and sounds of communities on both sides of the Anacostia River and amplifying the stories, culture, and heritage of neighboring African American residents.

Guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of Go-Go music, local drum lines, and military bands and will be socially distanced through chalked “pods” to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all. The concerts will stream live on 11th Street Bridge Park’s social media platforms (@DCBridgePark) for at-home enjoyment. In addition to musical performances, the Anacostia River Festival will feature pre-registered and socially distant river activities such as canoeing and fishing along the Anacostia River. These activities invite guests to reconnect with the river and nature while learning about the history of the Anacosita communities. Visit bridgepark.org to register.

Miki Yamanaka // 6:00 PM
REGISTER

The Miki Yamanaka Trio, featuring Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Jimmy Macbride on drums, will present her original music in addition to a couple of songs written by Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Her music is usually based on her everyday life. For example, she performed a few of her songs written about food. This is a pre-recorded set of music, audio engineered and mixed by Matt Marantz with video by Luke Marantz (at M.A.V Studio in Brooklyn). The video was edited by Miki Yamanaka.

Eri Yamamoto // 8:00 PM
REGISTER

Since moving to the United States in 1995, Eri Yamamoto has established herself as one of jazz’s most original and compelling pianists and composers. Jazz legend Herbie Hancock has said, “My hat’s off to her… already she’s found her own voice.”

During the past twenty years, Eri has been sharing her uniquely lyrical and evocative music with listeners in New York City, throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, Jamaica, and Australia; with appearances in concerts, clubs, and major festivals.She has a deeply empathetic rapport with her long-standing trio members bassist David Ambrosio and drummer Ikuo Takeuchi. Together they have recorded several albums, most recently “Life,” released in 2016. As the album title suggests, the music portrays a wide range of her experiences – from joyful to introspective, reflecting the vibrancy of New York City and exploring mysteries of nature and memory.

Yoko Miwa // 10:00 PM
REGISTER

Pianist Yoko Miwa and her trio featuring Will Slater on acoustic bass and Scott Goulding on drums will be playing music from Yoko’s new CD “Songs of Joy” which is out right now. In a pre-recorded set of music the Yoko Miwa Trio will feature Yoko’s original compositions as well as selections from Thelonious Monk, Billy Preston, Duke Jordan, Richie Havens and others. Recorded at Wellspring Sound Recording Studio in Boston by audio engineer Matt Hayes and videographer Roger Metcalf.
