AMSD Church

Hats off to AMSD (Acoustic Music San Diego) as it celebrates its 10 year anniversary this month! One of San Diego’s most unique concert venues and housed at the Normal Heights United Methodist Church, AMSD is the love child of Carey Driscoll. Here’s an interview I did with Carey last year where he talks about how this all came together, why he works so hard at this, and what keeps him and the church rocking after all these years.

AMSD: 8 ½ Years, Over 400 Shows, and Still Just a Labor of Love

Carey Driscoll is a San Diego treasure. He has rescued the ears and hearts of fans of bluegrass, gypsy jazz and acoustic music by bringing artists to town when no one else would. Thankfully, Carey Driscoll loves music. And thankfully, he loves what he does. “I could have model trains, fly kites, or take up some other hobby, but this is my hobby.” His AMSD concert series is a rare find these days. With no corporate sponsors, Ticketmaster, Live Nation, or very much help overall, Carey has created a concert series in Normal Heights that worships fine sounding music and performances.
