Watch We The People, Songs and Stories of America, with David Malmberg

We the People is a potpourri of our musical roots as a people.  Past and present, it is American culture through music and story that we the people have talked about, laughed about, cried about and sung about for over 235 years.  There are moments of poignancy, intellectual curiosity and outright laughter all woven together in a virtuosic and entertaining tapestry of guitar, banjo and vocal music. 

 

David Malmberg is the creator of We The People.  He calls himself a folksinger, but his training as a classical guitarist with America Martinez Serrano at the Conservatorio De Musica, in Sevilla, Spain really puts him in another league.  Called a “treasure” by Hugh Downs, former anchor of ABC’s 20/20, Mr. Malmberg’s exquisite style of playing and singing lends a unique artistry to his concerts.

 

With a vast repertoire at his disposal, (David has recorded eight CD’s of original compositions from gospel to solo guitar) his music integrates many styles including classical, jazz, and other contemporary musical idioms. Consequently, We the People will have a broad palette.  Though much of the music could be defined as Americana, Malmberg brings to bear his vast experience in many idioms of music making the programme rich, intricate and historical.

 

Malmberg says, “It is funny how life comes full circle.  I cut my teeth on Americana but through the years have devoted myself to many other forms of composition.  Now, here I am, back where I started from, once again drawing from the intensely rich musical heritage that is ours to share as Americans.   It is really quite fulfilling.”  

 

With a Master’s degree in music, he also provides a scholarly touch to We The People without becoming overly academic.  In fact, Malmberg worked for many years as a professional ventriloquist and has been known to interject some voice tossing into his concerts.  But, in his words, “My primary intention is to remember our rich American heritage through song, story and humor.”
