Burt Bacharach & Daniel Tashian Will ‘Walk On By’ — Virtually, That Is — To The Grammy Museum

Burt Bacharach and Daniel Tashian will be the focus of a digital program on the Grammy Museum’s website on Wednesday (Aug. 5).

The two musicians have been working together on projects, including a five-song EP, Blue Umbrella, being released today (July 31).

Bacharach is a six-time Grammy winner, including song of the year for co-writing Dionne & Friends’ “That’s What Friends Are For” (1986). Tashian is a two-time Grammy winner, including album of the year for co-producing Kacey MusgravesGolden Hour (2018).

Toots and the Maytals, who won best reggae album for True Love (2004), will be the focus of a Aug. 24 Grammy Museum program.

Past Grammy nominees who will appear are Margo Price, The Secret Sisters, Needtobreathe and Ashley McBryde.

The museum’s public programs digital series features intimate, sit-down interviews recorded via Zoom. They are conducted by Scott Goldman, moderator of the museum’s public programs. The Grammy Museum at L.A. Live in Los Angeles remains closed until further notice due to COVID-19.

The Grammy Museum will also release a digital exhibit on Aug. 7, “Rhymes & Reasons: The Music of John Denver.” Denver was a six-time host of the Grammy Awards, who, unfortunately, never won a Grammy in his lifetime.
