Pete Seeger: The Man and the Music
A multi-media celebration of Pete Seeger's legacy: history, politics, songs!
- They're great - It's great! -Joe Hickerson, co-author of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and Head Emeritus, Archive of Folk Culture, American Folklife Center, Library of Congress
- Hank and Claire offered one of the very best library programs I have ever seen! -Melody Sky Eisler, Director, Port Townsend WA Public Library
We take you back in time with banjo and 12-string guitar as we sketch the line from Pete’s passion for social justice issues (labor, war, civil rights, and the environment) to the music he inspired. Learn the back stories and sing along with songs like “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Turn, Turn, Turn.”
