for your consideration...

It’s Grammy® voting season and even if you’re not a “member of the Academy,” you may be interested in three Visual Dialogue-designed boxed sets released by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings this year. From the historical significance of The Social Power of Music to the iconic storytelling of Pete Seeger: The Smithsonian Folkways Collection to the 50-year celebration of Jazz Fest: The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, music unites us at a time when we need it most. We hope to make it back to the red carpet in January.
