2019 BYRDCLIFFE AWARDS CELEBRATION HONORING HAPPY TRAUM, JOHN SEBASTIAN, AND FRIENDS
On September 8, the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild will be honoring a group of artists from the region who have contributed not just to the pantheon of American music but have also performed many times in aid of a number of worthy causes and have therefore helped raise much needed money for the arts.
The honorees who will be given the Whitehead Award include Happy Traum, John Sebastian, Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Cindy Cashdollar, Amy Fradon, and Jane Traum, some of the finest musicians living and working in our region. Johanna Hall will act as the presenter of the Whitehead Award. This celebration allows Byrdcliffe the opportunity to both recognize and celebrate these artists as well as those that love them to participate in a memorable afternoon.
The event will include both a silent and live auction that best represents our honorees and the interests of those attending, cocktails, appetizers, and a lunch followed by the award presentation to Happy, John, and Friends. The Awards Celebration benefits the Byrdcliffe AIR (Artists-in-Residence) Program and its surroundings for the coming year.
Get your tickets now and do not miss this legendary afternoon of musical talent. Rock the day away celebrating the region's musical heritage and creative energy while enjoying the spectacular scenery at the Onteora Mountain House.
