Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
I was honoured to have received a VIP invitation to attend the event, and the private reception afterward, and will be heading to Toronto tomorrow for it.

Although I've known Pete for 30+ years and have probably seen him perform 50 or 60 times, I think this will be a very special, emotional event.

Note to Martin Gibson: I won't pretend to speak for Pete about his stance on Palestinian issues. However, from what I've been able to discern, his support for a just peace for both sides, and a Palestinian state, is not inconsistent with the position of the vast majority of Israelis themselves.
