We use the Hospitality suite to let people know who we are and what we do. With our showcase bands, workshops, and jams, we promote American Acoustic Music in many ways. One of our main purposes includes being a supportive sponsor for Wintergrass. Another is to involve as many members and acoustic music fans as we can to enjoy this fantastic festival with us. If you’re going to be at Wintergrass, come to Suite 355 and visit with us, see some terrific bands, and participate in some incredible jams. Check out our band and jam schedule.
Admission to the Suite is FREE!!

Our presence is intended to increase awareness regarding our association and as a non-profit organization, we are NOT charging admission. However, donations are gratefully accepted. Food and refreshments are available in the suite for a small donation. We will also be selling WAMA and 2017 Pickers’ Fest T-Shirts, WAMA Pick Cards, and WAMA Stickers.
