Podcast of interview with Hank and Claire  


Pete Seeger (1919-2014) is an iconic presence in the 20th Century American music landscape, revered by some and criticized by others for his activism on issues of labor, war, civil rights, and the environment. Pacific Northwest musical duo Hank and Claire explore how Seeger's activism inspired his music.  In addition to stories about his life, each phase of Seeger’s activism is illustrated with songs he wrote and/or popularized. You will learn the context for such iconic songs as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Turn, Turn, Turn.” Of course you are invited to sing along!

Taking risks is always …well, risky.  But as Rabindranath Tagore wrote, “You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”  Claire Favro, with assistance from Hank Payne, recounts her journey into crisis, community, and the healing power of music which led her to Hank and the new life they are creating together. Hank and Claire live in the Seattle area with two cats, guitars, banjo, bowed psalteries, and a great deal of music-making, some of which they will share with us during the presentation. Through words and songs, they invite us to reflect upon the risks we have taken that opened possibilities, and the risks and possibilities that are still to come.
