Subject: RE: Seegerfest - FREE !!!!
WOW!!! 3 1/2 hours of the top folk acts in the US!!!

A free 'sell-out' concert with world-wide sing-along participation via the Internet.

The video was streamed live from the Lincoln Centre in NYC last night.

The concert will also be streamed in a loop for the next 24 hours (about 7 repeats) at:

However I am astonished at the complete and utter lack of interest from Mudcatters in this concert, indeed in Peter Seeger himself.

Also I am astonished at the commensurate lack of interest from the UK folk fraternity in Peter Seeger and the influence that he had on peoples' lives. This includes the BBC.

Why?
