Gillette Brothers to perform at the capital
Houston County Courier - April 2008
The Gillette brothers are set to perform in the Washington D.C. at the Foklife Festival Wednesday, June 25 through Sunday, June 29.
The Smithsonian Folklife Festival is an international exposition of living cultural heritage annually produced outdoors on the National Mall of the United States in Washington, D.C., by the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.
The Festival takes place for two weeks every summer overlapping the Fourth of July holiday.
It is an educational presentation that features community-based cultural exemplars.
Free to the public, like other Smithsonian museums, each Festival typically draws more than one million visitors.
