A Time for Peace: The Life and Song of Pete Seeger
October 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
Pete Seeger honed his banjo skills while traveling in Appalachia and became the most stalwart of America’s troubadours for social justice, peace and the environment. Together with his wife, Toshi, he founded such iconic groups as The Almanac Singers and The Weavers and continued to entertain and rally crowds around their causes after others of his generation had long since faded away. Seeger sang for striking workers and union rallies in his youth, withstood with aplomb the brunt of the McCarthy communist witch hunt, bore with dignity 19 years of blacklisting from TV appearances because of his communist associations and continued performing and singing for causes he believed in right up until his death March 2014 at age 94.
