Pete seeger in concert i can see a new day - Pete Seeger s story behind Where Have All the Flowers Gone

The folk tradition is a deadpan tradition. It doesn't say too much, and it doesn't tell the listener how to think or feel. It describes, and suggests, and lets the listener find the depths in the song. Here's Doc Watson singing Tom Dooley:

The lesson here is that poets/song writers lead us to truth by putting the question to us. Answers will never come from the politicians unless we,in turn, challenge them with these has shown us that there is hope if enough us who have been inspired find our voice.

Offstage Seeger helped clean up the Hudson River with his Clearwater Project, which began in the late Sixties. In recent years Seeger, who lived with his longtime wife Toshi at a house he built in New York's Hudson Valley, slowed down, but barely. He continued to record and tour. (In 2012, he released not one but two albums, one of them a tribute to Guthrie.) He also appeared at an Occupy rally in 2011.

Pete Seeger's recording of his composition was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame , which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honor recordings that are at least 25 years old and that have "qualitative or historical significance."

But what is the story? It may not be what you think — that's another magic trick that Bruce pulls off over the course of the night. Beginning with such straight autobiography that it's almost paint-by-numbers, he engages in some of sleight of hand that brings us somewhere else entirely by the end of the night. It begins subject-by-subject and chapter-by-chapter. From childhood and an Elvis Presley creation myth ("Growin' Up") we move on to look at Freehold ("My Hometown"), his father ("My Father's House"), his mother ("The Wish"). Then there's the freedom of escape ("Thunder Road," sung with great tenderness). Up to this point, the show seems to write itself.

The mission of the Margaret Fuller House is to strengthen and empower youth, families, and community residents. We work to address the economic, social and political inequities that shape the lives and futures of Port/Area IV residents.
