Community Supported Music in Virginia - Unfortunately, too many people choose not to care about local music or local music venues. They are unaware of all of the positive things that local music events can do for towns and the local community in which they live. In order for CSM to work we need to build an expanding membership of musicians and music venues that really want to take part in this GrassRoots Business effort.

Our mission at is to provide VA Businesses with the most advanced local networking to assist them in making smart choices; to provide VA music businesses networkers with the tools and strategic alliances to increase their profit, leverage their marketing and help even the playing field when competing against large national franchises.

Scott Christopher Murray

Scott Christopher Murray is an accomplished singer/songwriter and a veteran of the acoustic music scene. Raised in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Scott grew up absorbing its rich story-telling tradition and Appalachian music legacy. His first album "The Old Man Dreams," a collection of original material, was a regional success.

Scott moved to Nashville in the early 1990's. While there, he opened for Emmylou Harris, Bruan Bowers, Goose Creek Symphony and Suzy Bogguss. He also shared the state with Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Shelby Lynn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and Henry Gross. Scott was named Grand Prize winner at the Gumtree Folk Festival, and was a regular performer at Townes Van Zandt's bar in Nashville

Before leaving Nashville and returning home to Virginia, Scott wrote and produced the songs on his second album, "Short Stories." Two of these songs were selected by Virginia-based DCD Records in 1998 to appear on a compilation of Shenandoah artists. Shortly after the release of this compilation, "In the Shadow of the Blue Ridge," the Canadian Games Commission and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation accepted one song for consideration for the 1999 Pan American Games. The song, "Manitoba, " was written by Canadian Dean Sayln and sung by Scott Christopher Murray.
