Bear Claw News

Welcome to the only website dedicated to power acoustic music! BCM is dedicated to acoustic roots music spanning many genres of Americana and world music. The difference? BCM artists are consummate entertainers, players, performers, and educators. But that's not all! BCM artists use a multitude of acoustic instruments on stage and in the studio making every performance dynamic, different and exciting.

We're excited to launch BCM's new face to the world, and hope you'll spend some time to check out our artists, video & music. We're also working on commercial downloads of DSD quality sound files. We hope you like the new look and find the site navigable.

Dates are available for 2017-2018 season!
