The AMRF is a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit arts and cultural organization dedicated to the advancement and promotion of all American musical forms. This site is by no means an exhaustive resource on American music, but is designed to give the visitor an introduction to the work of the AMRF and hopefully provide a vehicle for the study and enjoyment of the various forms of music that are collectively thought of as American.
The opinions expressed within this site are those of the contributors and may contain inaccurate information. In addition, much of what is known and communicated about music is by its very nature anecdotal.
Music can be thought of in many interesting ways. Music is art, math, language, mythology, and culture. While the music itself is scientific in its most elemental form, the human culture that creates and surrounds it is quite subjective.
The development and evolution of music in its many forms is arguable which only adds to the mystique surrounding many forms of music, most notably, those that are considered "folk" forms of music.
