“Pete Seeger Song Fest”
Peter Seeger was an American folk singer and social activist. He would turn 100 years old on May 3, 2019. Composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete for many years and collaborated on projects with the folk legend, leads the congregation singing many of Pete’s well-loved songs “If I Had a Hammer,” “Turn, Turn, Turn” and “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” along with many more powerful songs.
Pete got the world singing through the years of the Labor, Civil Rights and Peace movements. Along with some history and context from Jim, it’s an opportunity to raise our voices for the causes Pete championed and remember the great contributions to our American heritage Pete made in his 94 years of life.
