A group of acoustic musicians (Todd C. Walker, Tomy Wright, Rod Deacy and Doug Alan Wilcox) is creating an umbrella organization for acoustic musicians in and around Frederick County. FAME (Frederic Acoustic Music Enterprise) will be a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing, promoting and preserving original and traditional acoustic music of all genres. Our goals will be
(a) To nurture, promote and preserve original and traditional acoustic music of all genres in Frederick and Frederick County through live music, education and community outreach;
(b) To educate aspiring musicians and the general public about all aspects of original and traditional acoustic music of all genres via workshops, open mikes, showcases and concerts;
(c) To reach out to the community via workshops and concerts, especially through schools and youth organizations and the setting up of mentoring opportunities for young and aspiring acoustic musicians.
We are currently in the process of incorporating. Next step will be seeking 501c3 status.
Website should be up shortly!
