The L.A. Acoustic Music Festival will take place on the city’s Santa Monica Pier, which is marking its 100th anniversary this year.
The June 6-7 event, which benefits the California Acoustic Music Project, also features Natalie MacMaster, David Bromberg & the Angel Band, Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Slaid Cleaves, Joel Rafael, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, The Woody Guthrie Tribute (Ribbon of Hibhway, Endless Skyway), The Refugees (Wendy Waldman, Deborah Holland and Cindy Bullens) and Stonehoney.
CAMP provides artists-in-residence to schools on a salaried, ongoing basis through the curriculum of the Americana Project in order to ensure every student gets the experience of music instruction every day.
Instruments – primarily guitars, mandolins and banjos – are also provided and songwriting, instrumentation and performance are taught.
Each semester culminates in both a CD project and a concert performance.
Tickets for the festival are priced from $45 to $130 and are available in two-day, one-day and premier options.
