Industry conference set for San Antonio in June

Following the path of larger industry associations such as the Americana Music Association (AMA), Folk Alliance (FA) and International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), the Roots Music Association (RMA) announced its first industry conference and associated music festival, Music United '08.

So far, little information is available about the program and artist lineup, but the association itself has been gaining momentum behind its mission to promote independent artists playing in diverse roots music genres.

Just as RMA has a broad definition of "roots," Festival Preview's broad definition of "festival" embraces all types of musical gatherings. We'll keep our eye on MU08 as part of our coverage of industry conferences. If only we can keep all the initials straight.
