Thread Name: Pete Seeger documentary project
Subject: RE: Folklore: Pete Seeger documentary project
Well, just yesterday I had the pleasure of performing with Pete Seeger and several others. We participated in a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration at the Springfield Baptist Church in Beacon, NY.
Mr. Seeger is inspirational to say the least. He is a joy to be around and lifts you up spiritually with his message. I have known and loved Pete's music since childhood--during 70's I watched him on Sesame Street and knew of his music through that venue. I am fortunate to live in a neighboring town and have the opportunity to go to the Beacon Sloop Club and sing with him and his friends which is a wonderful experience. He surrounds himself with people who feel as he does--there is power in song.... Thank you for letting me share my experience.
