Subject: RE: Pete Seeger on NPR & new album
On Pete's collaborator, Lorre Wyatt, from Mike Regenstreif's blog:
Singer and songwriter Lorre Wyatt is best known for such songs as the anthemic "Somos El Barco/We are the Boat," which has been recorded by such artists as Pete Seeger and Peter, Paul & Mary, and for a number of songwriting collaborations with Pete dating back to the early efforts to clean up the Hudson River. In 1996, Lorre suffered a debilitating stroke that kept him on the sidelines for about 15 years. He has recently begun making music again and is again writing songs with Pete, who, at the age of 93, remains a remarkably vital musical artist.
