When the Roots Music Series came to an end in 2015, a group of music aficionados explored the idea of continuing, and even expanding, the project. In early 2016, the Highlands American Music Series (HAMS) was born.
For 12 years, The Roots Music Series featured semi-annual concerts featuring the greats of American Roots music -- Rhonda Vincent, The Seldom Scene, Frank Solivan, Dailey and Vincent and many others. The Highlands American Music Series promises to bring more of the great performances of Bluegrass, Folk, Celtic and other American music to the Highlands of Western Maryland.
We have been fortunate to sell out nearly all of the concerts in our first four seasons. After the brief COVID-19 hiatus in 2020, join us as music returns in our fifth season with three-time IBMA Banjo Player of the Year nominee Gina Furtado on November 20, 2021, at The Palace Theatre in Frostburg!
