Music and Activism

Description/Abstract of your Event: 

Over a span of three-quarters of a century, Pete Seeger, as musician, performer, social and political activist, and revolutionary thinker, had a profound effect in all these areas on many people. Our panel, (four) people who knew and performed with him, will discuss Pete’s influence by presenting his songs, both famous and lesser known, some personal anecdotes, and his influence on the social and political movements and activism of today. In a brief workshop period, the panelists will encourage the attendees to relate any of their own memories and stories of first-hand encounters and how they were influenced by Pete.
