The Great Lakes Acoustic Music Association will officially launch a virtual concert series on March 16th, 2021, at 7:00 pm.
From 2002 until 2018, the Great Lakes Acoustic Music Association (GLAMA) held a live music event in Kalamazoo known as the Cooper’s Glen Music Festival. This annual event included several hands-on workshops and featured concerts performed by artists recognized both nationally and locally. In conjunction with other regularly scheduled monthly activities, the Cooper’s Glen Festival allowed this non-profit organization to successfully achieve our mission to promote, preserve, and perform acoustic music – with a focus on stringed instruments. Much like other organizations founded on interpersonal community interaction, GLAMA has been discovering new ways to carry out its mission as they navigate the uncharted waters of pandemic restrictions.
GLAMA extends an invitation for the official premiere of The Board Member Select Virtual Concert Series on March 16th at 7:00 pm. The Board of Directors will present a new set to debut from their recently obtained collection of hi-fi recordings of the Cooper’s Glen Festivals.
“We are excited for the debut of The GLAMA Board Member Select, which will feature recordings from our previous Cooper’s Glen Music Festivals for your listening enjoyment. This virtual event should help keep the pilot light lit for acoustic roots music in our community as we wait to safely resume our monthly activities.” Kathy Nichols, GLAMA President.
The board has selected Who Hit John for the first featured artist of this concert series and will broadcast their set from 2015. A suitable fit to kick-off this series, the local Kalamazoo band has achieved a notable amount of success in various acoustic genres such as Americana, bluegrass, blues, and more! This initial concert’s success will determine the frequency and on-demand availability for future shows in the series.
