WAMA Concerts and Workshops


musical line separator

The Washington Acoustic Music Association (WAMA) is very proud to host concerts and workshops throughout the year. Although we're in a small town, we are conveniently close to both Portland and Seattle, and our events draw folks from both directions. We bring some of the best acoustic musicians from all over. Near the bottom of this page are profiles of just some of the musicians who have come to perform and teach in Winlock.

Please support WAMA so we can continue providing these types of Concerts and Workshops.
