    Just in Time for Father's Day, Gift Memberships Are Now Available

    Shopping for a perfect surprise present for Father’s Day? Smithsonian Folkways has you covered; we're excited to offer gift memberships for the first time!

    Perks for your pops (or any fan of Folkways) include free downloads, discounts, merch, special gifts, and more. Members are key stakeholders to our legacy, granting us critical support for our work in cultural sustainability and helping us bring you music of, by, and for the people.

    Member support truly helps to make our projects possible. So far this year, we’ve reissued several classic avant-garde and experimental albums back on vinyl, welcomed the Western Jubilee Recording Company to our extended family, shared unheard recordings of the legendary Doc Watson and Gaither Carlton, and released new albums from Sunny Jain, Wu Fei & Abigail Washburn, José-Luis Orozco, as well as our first 7" vinyl record from Lula Wiles. We can't wait to share what else we have planned for 2020 with you.

    Let's not call it a "last minute present," let's call it a "right-on-time gift" that will last all year; visit the Folkways website to learn more about the membership program, scope out the different tiers, and join up today.
