In Studio: Alana Amram

Thursday, August 04, 2011

Musician and self-professed record geek Alana Amram fell in love with the work of Vince Martin, an influential but underappreciated singer songwriter of the 1950s and ‘60s folk world. The resulting album, “Snow Shadows,” contains Amram’s interpretations of Martin’s hallmark recordings and a few unreleased tracks. Alana Amram joins us in studio for a live performance.

See Alana Amram with her band, the Rough Gems, at Union Hall on Thursday, August 18th, 2011. More information here.

That's wonderful. They were all the most talented group of musicians ever! I was fortunate enough to hear them perform live in the sixties in coconut grove. Among the greatest musical experiences I have had. They are all unforgettable.

Yeah, Martin & Neil, Coconut Grove in the sixties. Vince Martin has the voice of an angel and Alana does a great job interpreting his songs

Doesn't the Spanish Grammys in Florida now pick up with the regular Grammys dropped?
