Welcome to the Americana Music Association UK
The AMA-UK is a professional trade association representing and advocating for the voice of American Roots music in the UK. Our membership comprises musicians, both from the UK and overseas, plus professionals from all sectors of the music industry, such as agents, promoters, venues, festivals, labels, distributors, retailers, management, touring, journalists, broadcasters and publicists.
We also welcome non-professional members in our new 'supporter' role, empowering Americana fans to actively support the music they love.
What is Americana music?
We find it best described as the genre that incorporates elements of various roots music styles resulting in a distinctive sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.
