WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Jazz in the Garden concert series at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden kicked off this Friday, with performances continuing through the end of August.

The first headliner was Matuto, a blues band that specializes in a fusion of Brazilian and bluesgrass music. Their band name is Brazilian slang for 'country bumpkin'.

The concerts will take place every Friday evening from 5:00 to 8:30 in the Sculpture Garden. You can find a calendar of events here.
