Like romantic dust Drew Gibson's music draws on influence from the American days of country-blues and songwriters of the recent past. Since releasing his debut album “Letterbox” in 2007 the finger-style guitarist from Virginia has garnered attention from USA Today, The Washington Post, The Washington Area Music Association, RVA Magazine, and No Depression, for his intensely personal songs and stagecraft as a live performing story-teller.

Gibson recently released his third effort entitled “1532.” The latest offering was born from the healing journey on which he embarked after the loss of his father on the Fourth of July 2012. "Fifteen Thirty-Two" traces stories of Gibson’s family from its roots in Scotland to the branches across Canada and the United States. The album was considered one of the top releases in 2015 by No Depression. In 2016, Drew began work on his fourth album entitled, "Shipbuilder," which will be released in early 2018.

In April 2018, Secretary Skorton announced 2019 will be the Smithsonian Year of Music, an Institution-wide initiative to increase public engagement, advance understanding, and connect communities in Washington, D.C., across the nation, and around the globe. The Smithsonian Year of Music will highlight and share our vast musical holdings, bringing together our resources in history, art, culture, science, and education.



The Smithsonian Year of Music will feature “365 Days of Music at the Smithsonian” with a variety of music-related activities: performances, music releases, exhibitions, workshops, educational programs, lectures, films, and conferences. The 2019 Smithsonian Folklife Festival (June 26 to 30 and July 3 to 7, 2019 on the National Mall) will focus on the “Social Power of Music.”
