• David Amram with Michael Bourne on Clearwater Award

    November 3, 2012. Posted by Tim Wilkins.

    David Amram, one of the most open-eared and open-hearted musical artists in the world, came to WBGO for a talk with Michael Bourne.  He’s being honored with the “Power of Song” Award from the Clearwater Foundation at a stellar gathering Friday November 9 at Symphony Space in Manhattan.

    Pete Seeger, founder of Clearwater, will present the award and perform alongside other friends of David, including  Paquito D’Rivera, Henry Butler, Guy Davis, Josh White Jr, and young musicians premiering a new Amram composition.  Also premiering at the event will be the documentary film “David Amram: The First 80 Years."
