“My heart has always been to get the music out there, in whatever way it can,” said festival promoter Renee Bodie in a statement. “Los Angeles isn’t broken, but it has become very disconnected. This is about our community and being able to buck the odds and have a celebration of acoustic music in a time when our hearts need it the most.”

The LA Acoustic Music Festival debuts in a year in which the venerable Claremont Folk Festival is on a one-year hiatus, making the event even more indispensible for fans of folk and Americana music.
