Robert Lang, WBAL NewsRadio 1090 interviews David Bach
Composer: “World Needs More Musicians & Less | WBAL Radio 1090 AM
This is the 35th year for Artscape.
Among the Friday night headliners is the David Bach Consort, led by keyboardist and composer David Bach.
The North Baltimore resident is performing at his fourth Artscape.
He told Maryland’s News This Week that “it is not a cliche” that Artscape is bringing people in a city that many see as divided racially or economically.
“This is a reality, and I think this is why the arts, and music in particular is a universal language, it is something that transcends all different cultures, all different age groups. It’s something that truly brings us together,” Bach told Maryland’s News This Week.
“It breaks down all barriers. I think what we need today is more music. We need more musicians and less politicians.”
In March, Bach won the “Best Jazz Artist” award at the 2016 Maryland Music Awards.
Next Saturday night, July 23, Bach will perform at the Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center.
