Pete Seeger and the Power of Song: Tribute to a Folk Legend
As a singer, folk-song collector, and songwriter, Grammy winner Pete Seeger spent a long career championing folk music as both a vital heritage and a catalyst for social change and remains an influential presence in the American folk music scene, even after his passing on January 27, 2014. He became a cultural hero through his outspoken commitment to the antiwar and civil rights struggles in the 1960s, and for environmental and antiwar causes in the 1970s and beyond. He wrote a number of folk standards, including "If I Had a Hammer" (with Lee Hays), "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?," and "Turn! Turn! Turn!"--among many others.
Presented in conjunction with the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, Pete Seeger and the Power of Song: Tribute to a Folk Legend is a special one-night-only concert that will celebrate the artistry and lasting influence of American folk icon Pete Seeger with some of yesterday and today's most beloved artists performing his memorable classics. The musical evening will feature Grammy winners Rosanne Cash with John Leventhal, Judy Collins, Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary), David Amram, Sarah Lee Guthrie (granddaughter of Woody Guthrie) and Johnny Irion, Kaia Kater, The Last Internationale, Roger McGuinn (of the Byrds), Tom Paxton, and Tony Trischka and Josh White Jr.
