The Press Office said...

Dear Friends in music and Art:

I am saddened to hear of our friend Artie Traum's passing.

Our condolences are warmly extended to his wife Beverly, brother and partner Happy Traum and his wife Jane.

"Artie and John Sebastian performed for ParkinSong this year in Nashville, to support efforts to halt Parkinsons' disease suffering, and this show of kindness and altruism speaks volumes to this quality individual and the good will and spirit for mankind that was in Artie's huge and soft heart. He was my beloved friend and his smile and sincere love for art will endure in his music. I'll cherish our time together and unforgettably funny and inspiring lunches with his dear friend John Sebastian in Woodstock," Jim Della Croce (Pictured here Left to right: felix Cavaliere, Artie and John Sebastian)
