The thriving, vibrant community that comprises Americana music today gives the lie to the “dusty relics” image the term may once have implied. The Americana tent is wide and deep, welcoming artists at every level and from every type of American roots music. Once the province of tiny clubs, Americana artists have moved to festival main stages and the term has become synonymous with music that speaks from the heart and soul.

Join us as we discuss an evolving art form and the community committed to its future.
