SANTA BARBARA IN ACTION:
As an example of the PIFB, we invite you to become a charter member of the Santa Barbara Acoustic Music Association (SBAMA.org) and help create a community resource which will promote local year round acoustic music, education and lutherie activities to children and adults.
The primary objective will be to provide a forum to coordinate:
Acoustic Music via a calendar for the smaller venues, house concerts, promoters and non-profit benefits with an emphasis on coordinating central coast bookings of acoustic musicians in all genres
Music Education through local school & non-profit programs and private teachers to provide resources and opportunities to get into music.
Lutherie Education through lectures, local shop visits and workshops which will provide demonstrations on the science behind the creation of sound, concepts of instrument building & craftsmanship, and teaching the building of simple stringed instruments from common materials in the grade schools to more advanced instruments from precut kits in the middle schools. The modern renaissance of lutherie is truly an American story of invention and craftsmanship in need of preservation in a world of global fabrication.
Cooperation among promoters along the 101 corridor from LA to SLO so that house concerts and more can be coordinated for traveling musicians.
Share Your Passion through SBAIC from August 25-27, 2017 and SBAMA year round with local acoustic musicians, teachers and luthiers, and celebrate the healing power of music and working with hands.
