PETE SEEGER: THE MAN AND THE MUSIC
Pete Seeger (1919-2014), a fellow UU, is an iconic presence in the 20th Century American music landscape, revered by some and reviled by others for his activism on issues of labor, war, civil rights, and the environment. Pacific Northwest musical duo Hank and Claire sketch the line from Pete Seeger’s personal story to the social justice issues that inspired him. In addition to stories about his life, each phase of Seeger’s activism will be illustrated with songs he wrote and/or popularized. You will learn the context for such iconic songs as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Turn, Turn, Turn.” Of course you are invited to sing along!
Hank Payne and Claire Favro return to PUUF with their joyous music and storytelling.
