Since his 2007 debut, “Letterbox,” Washington-based singer and songwriter Drew Gibson has been hard at work with producer and fellow musician Paul Curreri on his follow-up album, “The Southern Draw.” The new album reaches into a world of country blues, Americana and folk and experiments with percussion styles and the old-fashioned folk for which Gibson, a Richmond native, is known. “Letterbox” landed numerous accolades for Gibson, including the Washington Area Music Association’s new artist of the year and best contemporary folk album prizes. Drew Gibson joins longtime friend and local folk singer BJ Kocen at Ashland Coffee and Tea on Friday, Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. $10. 798-1702.
