Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
I remember going back stage...it must have been the early 1990s...to pay Pete after a concert he had done for our Madison (WI) folk group, and saw him putting on the braces he wore for his carpal tunnel. He was in pain every time he played his banjo, yet he kept on sharing his music with the rest of us. I read his "farewell" statement in SingOut a couple of issues ago, and was amazed then that he has lasted as long as he has. Best of luck to him and, after everything he has brought to all of us, I hope he has some years for others to bring things to him.
