Summer Acoustic Music Week’s 20th Anniversary

SAMW Gala Fundraising Challenge


We met our $12,500 challenge!!
We are grateful to each of you for your contribution to the WUMB/SAMW Gala Fund, and delighted that those dollars will be doubled. Thank you for your generosity, and for your commitment to both the radio station and the Summer Acoustic Music Week programs.

This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of WUMB’s Summer Acoustic Music Week. SAMW began as the dream of Dick Pleasants, Lorraine Hammond and Bob Franke–a dream that first came to fruition on Thompsons Island in 1996. Since then it has grown into a unique, vibrant music community with a local, national and international following, and has changed the lives of countless people, students and instructors alike.

To honor our 20th year, we are looking to celebrate in style with a concert and Gala on September 26, 2015 at the Quincy Marriott! The event will include dinner, music by an internationally revered guitar star, (whose name we can’t disclose yet), their band, and of course great general merriment and shared appreciation for SAMW’s own leading lights.

The Gala offers us a rare opportunity both to raise additional funds for WUMB, as we look to the future of our unique brand of music programming, and to create a vision for the next twenty years of WUMB’s Summer Acoustic Music Week.
