Three groundbreaking journalists are teaming up Tuesday at the Newseum for a once-in-a-lifetime panel discussion. CNN's chief political correspondent, Candy Crowley, senior correspondent and co-anchor of "PBS NewsHour," Judy Woodruff, and moderator and managing editor of Washington Week, Gwen Ifill, will discuss their personal experiences covering past presidential elections and what to expect this election. These three women have pioneered the journalism world. Crowley, who moderated the presidential debate last week, is the first woman to moderate a debate since 1992. Woodruff and Ifill stand as the first all-female team to anchor PBS' coverage of the Democratic and Republican National conventions.
While this event is open only for Newseum Press Pass members, you can stream it live at newseum.org. The panel begins at 7:30 p.m.
Jerry Douglas is THE master of the Dobro -- described as "the Muhammad Ali of the Dobro" by James Taylor, "Dobro's matchless contemporary master" by the New York Times and "my favorite musician" by John Fogerty -- and he's in town to play the unique space of Sixth & I (600 I St. NW).
For those asking what a Dobro is right about now, it's a special type of resonator guitar stylized perfectly for country music. And Douglas knows how to play it -- winning 13 Grammys and three Country Music Association Musician of the Year awards, he has been featured on more than 1,600 albums and has collaborated with artists as diverse as Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Phish, and Mumford & Sons.
Why this will be an amazing show: "I've reached a point in my life where I'm not afraid to try anything," states Douglas, who has been a key member of Alison Krauss and Union Station since 1998.
Doors open at 7 for the 8 p.m. show. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster for $35.
