Composer Headlines All-Star Tribute to Pete Seeger
In celebration of his 84th birthday, composer and multi-instrumentalist David Amram will be performing a concert on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 7pm at Long Island University's Hillwood Recital Hall. The theme of the program is Remembering Pete Seeger and the lineup features not only Amram and his quintet, but also such luminaries as Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul, and Mary fame), Tom Chapin, Guy Davis, Holly Near, and Garland Jeffreys among many others paying tribute to the late folk icon. All the performers, notably including Amram himself, were friends and collaborators with Seeger and the evening promises to be an unforgettable night for fans of folk music. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Gold Coast Arts Center, a non-profit organization that promotes arts education.
