Meet AMP Concerts
As a mission-driven non-profit organization, AMP Concerts is the leading cultural institution in New Mexico providing innovative and inspiring arts programming to diverse audiences. Our concerts bridge ages, demographics, and cultural backgrounds. We believe that music creates community, preserves culture, acts as medicine and facilitates human connection.
Founded in 2004, AMP has hosted thousands of concerts by many of the world’s most creative and celebrated musicians including songwriting legends Jackson Browne and Joan Baez; country icons Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett; jazz and classical masters Chick Corea and Philip Glass; world music ambassadors R. Carlos Nakai and Paco de Lucía; indie rock pioneers Wilco and David Byrne; and many more. Local artists appear regularly at our events as openers, celebrating CD releases and during the pandemic in a wide range of virtual programs.
AMP also provides ongoing free concerts throughout the state, making music more broadly accessible, including programs for school-age groups. Free concerts have been provided at libraries, state historic sites, the Santa Fe Railyard, the N4th Art Center for the developmentally disabled, Western New Mexico University, the Santa Fe Folk Art Market, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and more.
