The Abraham Jam: David LaMotte
David LaMotte has been writing and performing music all over America and the world for over two decades now. In 2008 he put music on hold to accept a Rotary World Peace Fellowship to study International Relations, Peace and Conflict Resolution at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. He is the author of two books, S.S. Bathtub, a children's book based on one of his songs, and White Flour, which is based on events that occurred during a two thousand seven protest of a rally by the Ku Klux Klan. LaMotte describes the book as a story of humor conquering hatred.
LaMotte has also been a key organizer of The Abraham Jam, an occasional evening of music and poetry featuring musicians from the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian faiths.
