Free! Rockabilly Night feat. Kiti Gartner (full band)
Kiti Gartner & the Drifting Valentines is a band out of Washington DC who play western swing, rockabilly, old country with a pinch of jump blues. Their influences include music from the 1940s and on, including almost everything that came out of The Quonset Hut, RCA Studio B in the 50s/60s, Sun Records and Bakersfield. Kiti Gartner (vocals and rhythm guitar), Zachary Sweeney (lead guitar), Steve Wolf (upright bass), Brian Alpert (drums). Established in 2013, and re-formed in 2017, the Drifting Valentines are working on their first release hoping to be completed this winter.

Smithsonian Year of Music

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.”

Launch your exploration of music at the Smithsonian at https://music.si.edu/ and stay tuned for special performances and events, highlighted programming and collections, partners and collaborations. Much more to come!
