Theme: David Amram and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott – Celebrating two iconic musical legends at 90

David Amram, classical composer and conductor, jazz musician and composer, folksinger and songwriter, turned 90 on November 17, 2020. Legendary folksinger and storyteller Ramblin' Jack Elliott, travelling companion to Woody Guthrie and significant influence on the young Bob Dylan, turned 90 this week on August 1. I’ve known Jack since 1971 and David since 1974, have worked with both of them numerous times over the years, and have learned much from them. Both Jack and David are still going strong and performing at age 90.

Theme: Remembering Mimi Fariña

Mimi Fariña – the younger sister of Joan Baez and the musical partner and widow of important singer, songwriter and author Richard Fariña – passed away 20 years ago this week on July 18, 2001 from cancer at the young age of 56. Most of the show is devoted to a concert recorded in 1988 for German radio.


Mimi & Richard Fariña
- Pack Up Your Sorrows
Celebrations for a Grey Day (Vanguard)

Mimi was an activist and in 1974, she founded a non-profit organization called Bread & Roses in the San Francisco Bay area that presents more than 600 concerts per year in institutions ranging from children's day care centres and special needs schools, to hospitals, adult and juvenile detention facilities, homeless shelters, adult recovery centers, nursing homes and seniors’ day centres.

Mimi named her organization Bread & Roses after reading James Oppenheim’s poem, Bread & Roses, written in honor of the women garment workers on strike in 1912 in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The strike became known as the Bread & Roses strike because of its slogan – “Give us bread, but give us roses, too.” Mimi set the poem to music and it became the title song of Judy Collins’ 1976 album, Bread and Roses.

Judy Collins- Bread and Roses
Bread and Roses (Elektra)

The concert by Mimi Fariña with Lowell Levinger -- recorded February 2nd, 1988 by Michael Kleff for German radio -- is available on a CD called Live in Germany: To Benefit Bread & Roses. It is available from the Bread & Roses website at this link.
