A Word About Music Video Asheville Sponsors:

***
What is FoAM?
FoAM, Future of Asheville Music, began in December 2006 as an initial gathering of about 70 local Buncombe County musicians at the Asheville Area Arts Council. The goal was to start a networking/professional development group of musicians to support Asheville music. From that meeting came a number of ideas from marketing Asheville as the national music city that it is to generating more support for individual musicians at local venues, to providing opportunities for musicians to network. Developed by the FoAM Core, a play on the traditional steering committee, the FoAM mission is to promote and support Asheville area-based musicians through advocacy, networking, and education. Music Video Asheville is one way FoAM meets that mission. Please email foam@futureofashevillemusic.com for more info.
