The SAMW Experience

Now in its 19th year, the Summer Acoustic Music Week (SAMW) offers participants the chance to work with some of the best folk and acoustic musicians and teachers in the country.  SAMW is sponsored by WUMB Radio, Boston, and each exuberant week is filled with intensive instruction, jamming , workshops, concerts, open mikes, dancing, and musical collaboration with instructors attuned to the needs of each student.

No matter what your musical skill or experience, you can enjoy your time at SAMW.  Class levels range from elementary to advanced, although not every class is offered at every level.

A Train with Lisa Garvey

 

Welcome to 2014…I hope it’s treating you kindly so far!  We’ve got a new show that premiered recently on Sunday morning at 8am called A Train and is hosted by Lisa Garvey.  Give it a listen!  Lisa’s family comes from a Jazz background so she has a lot of knowledge to share when it comes some of those players and songs.

Publicize YOUR company & help WUMB at the same time!

I’m sure you’ve heard this before:

 

I’d like to talk to you if you own a business. I have an idea that would be a big win/win for everyone.

 

Now here’s the part you haven’t heard:

 

As usual the WUMB Fall Member Drive takes place this month. It is, as always, a critical one for the station, and we have to reach our fund raising goal to be able to continue to offer the programing that you have come to count on. Over the years we’ve found that the most successful way to inspire people to donate is challenges. That’s when a company, organization or even an individual offers to match part, or all, of listener donations for a period of time or up to a predetermined amount. Read More…
