Thread Name: 'Strangers and Cousins' Pete Seeger lp
Subject: 'Strangers and Cousins' Pete Seeger lp
I remember hearing that the picture of two girls, similar looking but one blond-haired and one black-haired Japanese, on the album cover of "strangers and cousins" were real cousins and that one was Pete Seeger's own daughter. Can anyone verify this information, or say what story you read or heard about the illustration? I know of course, that Pete's wife Toshi was half Japanese.

I sent a Japanese friend a link to a recording of Pete Seeger singing in Japanese. He was singing a Japanese song about Hiroshima, and Junko said he sang it very well. She found some Japanese recordings for me but said that she herself preferred Pete's version.
