Great Music. Great Community.

The Music

What is Americana Music?

Americana is contemporary music that incorporates elements of various Americana roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. We call it the edgier side of Folk. For the ACMA, the emphasis is on singer/songwriters, performing their original songs on acoustic instruments.

The American Community Music Association (ACMA) is a not for profit 501(c) (3) organization
created and run by local musicians and fans of Americana music.
