P is for…

Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger, whom I saw in concert last night at the Sellersville Theater.  He is 89 years old; I hope when I am that old I can still do what I enjoy most – knitting, walking/hiking, science.

The concert was with his grandson,Tao Rodriguez Seeger:

All three performers were fabulous, the music and the story telling and the singalongs…

Sellersville is a lovely venue, pity it is so far away, it was like being part of a small community; especially as behind me were people I knew from Clearwater Festival.

I am still psyched about the show; hearing great folk music and joining the singing along, as you are obliged to do at a Pete Seeger concert, means that I am really excited about going to Ashokan at the weekend.

  2. 89! Very cool. And playing with his grandson? Cooler yet!

    I love folk music; learned to play guitar, just a little, so I could sing. Sweet. Glad you saw this show.

  3. I’m still psyched and it is three days later. Mind you, I drive up to Ashokan later today.
