What We Do and How We Do It
What We Do
Music Maker tends the roots of American music by supporting senior traditional musicians and educating the public.
From our beginnings in 1994, Music Maker has not only documented and preserved America’s traditional musicians but also formed long-term partnerships with them to raise their standards of living and levels of expertise.
To uphold our mission, it really does take a village. Meet the people who make Music Maker work.
Our Board & Partners
Without the support of our outstanding board of directors and board of advisers — as well as countless supporters — Music Maker could not carry out its mission.
Music Maker is fully transparent about its finances and operations. Learn more in our Annual Reports.
