Thread Name: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity
One of the better stories I've read, perhaps two years ago, was Bob Gibson's telling of his first encounter with Pete. My dim memory says that Bob Gibson was about 16, and actually drove up to Pete's home. He interuppted Pete's day, yet Pete was very gracious and accommodating. That meeting was pivotal in Bob Gibson's life. Why was I not surprised when I read this! There's another aspect about Pete that I well remember and admire. I don't have one word that encompasses it all, but it certainly includes: courtesy, manners, politeness, and encouragment to others. CHEERS, Bob (thanks for starting this thread) Bob
