The show began with a rousing sing-a-long led by Rick Hill.  This was followed by an evening of quite varied music showcasing some of the great musicians in Frederick County and nearby areas!  A cold night out, but we were warmed by the music!  Thanks to Todd Walker for putting this together!  Thanks also to Paul and Kelly Hill for providing a great venue!

The purposes of Frederick Acoustic Music Enterprise are:

(1) 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;

(2) 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;

(3) 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.

Our vision is to include ALL forms of acoustic music including (but not limited to) bluegrass, celtic, traditional, singer/songwriter, gospel, a capella, choral, classical, jazz, children's, - in short, anything that does not require amplification!  We are not averse to electric/electronic music - some of our members play that as well!  We feel that acoustic music is often overlooked, short-changed, or down-played in our community.  Therefore, we are focused on acoustic music, recognizing it as part of a larger tapestry of music that energizes our community.
