Pete Seeger was our our wood chopping, maple syrup making, protest singing, banjo playing, ship building, song writing, book authoring, album making, concert performing, boat sailing and community involvement friend. He was America’s connection to its own musical legacy. He traveled with Woody Guthrie, archived America’s music with John Lomax, helped introduce Dylan and Joan Baez to the world and introduced Martin Luther King to a reworded old song called “We Shall Overcome.” He sang in Madison Square Garden, concert halls around the world and grammar schools. He would think of nothing, even at 94 years old, to grab his banjo and stand on a cold street corner with protesters for any cause he agreed with. This is a show giving students a chance to hear the musical legacy of Pete Seeger as presented by several of his friends who knew and worked with him.
