Scholarship Fund

As part of our mission to nurture acoustic music in and around Frederick County, F.A.M.E. has set up a scholarship fund.  Click here for more information.



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.
