Benefits of Membership

By joining the Americana Music Association UK you are supporting an organisation that gives a voice to a genre of music that otherwise would not be heard. We are a professional not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to promote Americana music in the UK.

We work to increase the general awareness of our genre and community by raising the profile, creating opportunities and above all by connecting artists to appreciative audiences and to each other.

We conduct an ongoing campaign via grassroots marketing, social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and word of mouth. We work throughout the year to bring members opportunities to showcase at festivals and find opportunities to be involved with events. We work closely with the Official Charts company to ensure all Americana releases that are eligible for the charts are included.

When you join you become an active supporter of the music you love, with access to the members directory, nominating and voting privileges and an annual conference and awards event.

We work tirelessly to ensure our members get the best out of joining AMA-UK. Only through your membership and financial support can we continue to do our work.
