Benjamin Verdery: Remembering Julian Bream

This video belongs to our online series: Remembering Julian Bream. The Brand New You are able to Guitar Festival asked a lot of our favorite artists to mirror around the existence and musical legacy from the Grammy Award-winning classical guitarist and lutenist Julian Bream, who died at his home in Wiltshire, England on August 14, 2020, at age 87. 

Benjamin Verdery may be the Kevin Bacon from the guitar world – everybody appears to understand him.  In 1985, he grew to become chair from the guitar department that Eliot Fisk founded at Yale, making it a formidable supply of great musicians, from Jiji to rock guitarist/composer Bryce Dessner.  His repertoire ranges from Bach to Hendrix to their own works.

The NYGF and also the performing artists are asking viewers to give to MusiCares. Find out more about the charitable first step toward It Academy’s MusicCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, and donate to assist the background music community impacted by the pandemic, here:  world wide web.grammy.com/musicares/get-help/musicares-coronavirus-relief-fund
