More SAMW Online!

Our first online SAMW Faculty Concert, featuring Chris James, was a smash success, and we can’t wait to do more…so we won’t!  We are excited to announce our 2nd SAMW Faculty Concert on Monday, October 26 at 8:00pm, featuring Kate Campbell!! Read More…

Keeping the SAMW Spirit Alive –

We may not be able to be together in person for music, but we can surely be together online for music — we have the technology!!  

Come one, come all, and join Lorraine and Bennett Hammond on September 14 at 8:00 for an “After The Dance” Jam Session, live streaming on their Facebook Page.  This is a fun, all levels jam — come to play, or just come to listen and watch!

And next, we are thrilled to announce the first in our Online Instructor Concert series: September 28 at 8:00pm, featuring Christopher James!  We didn’t want to wait another whole year to see and hear our fantastic instructors, so we plan to bring them to you live each month throughout the 2020-21 academic year.

Watch This Space…

…or visit the SAMW Website, because we are making plans!  Our Acoustic Music Camps may be on hold for in-person gathering and instruction, but that just means that we will be sharing our music and our community online, as much and as best we can.  Look for announcements for new offerings beginning in September.

The spirit of SAMW is alive and well at WUMB!!

Ways to Stay Connected

Even though we’re not able to come together at Music Camps this summer, there are still a lot of ways that we can spend time “together” online! You can join the SAMW listserv group. You can join the SAMW group on Facebook. And you can keep up with online music events that Music Campers and Instructors are offering and sharing by going to the SAMW Gazette page on the SAMW Website. Read More…

Staying Together While We’re Apart

At the beginning of May we made the difficult decision to cancel both of our Summer Acoustic Music Weeks in July and August 2020. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our SAMW community, and we are certain that this is the best course of action to take this summer.

But our instructors and campers are still making music, and we are committed to doing whatever we can to help us all stay connected. Read More…

There’s never a dull moment here at WUMB, and I’m happy to announce that we are already solidifying the line-up of instructors for the next WUMB Blues Music Camp! Once again it will be held in the beautiful wooded grounds of Grotonwood Camp and Conference Center in Groton, MA, located just about 45 minutes west of Boston. Grotonwood provides a good mix of convenience, comfort, and camp feel. A perfect spot for music-making and camaraderie! Read More…

SAMW is 25 in 2020!

2020 marks the 25th anniversary of WUMB’s flagship adult music camp, the Summer Music Acoustic Week!  SAMW began as a vision in the mind of WUMB on-air host Dick Pleasants, and for the first few years was a single week with just a few dozen campers, but it didn’t stay small for long.   Read More…
