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. Watch the video…the presentation will leave you concluding that We The People is right for the time.
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 Master’s Degree in music, he also provides a scholarly touch to We the People without becoming overly academic. In Mr. Malmberg’s words, “My primary intention is to remember our rich American Heritage through song, story and humor.” As musician, storyteller, humorist and scholar, he more than accomplishes this goal.
“What an absolutely wonderful program.”
–Music at Penn Alps, Grantsville, MD
“Malmberg is a treasure, his music is marvelous.”
–Hugh Downs, formerly of ABC’s 20/20
