Thread Name: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Irwin Silber gave Pete Seeger and the Weavers incredible flack about copywriting their arrangements of songs, which the story was they did to keep someone else from doing what Kingston Trio from doing to Frank Proffit -- they never stopped anyone -- or tried-- or thought it was a good idea -- to keep anyone from singing the songs they helped popularize. au contraire. They said sing sing sing!

Irwin Silber's reappearance on the pages of Sing Out! intrigues me ...
