Any man who will not be corralled by conventional thought and provokes others to think outside the box is dangerous to established power. Whoever attends a Seeger concert will come away with a challenge to the blind acceptance of faith in both government and its whitewashed, selective version of history. Those who lack the courage to demand that our leadership live up to these principles need to question their own patriotism. Learning the 5-string Appalachian-style went slowly at first, but later would become his trademark. Pete met the love of his life, Toshi-Aline Ohta at Margot Mayo's Square Dance Club on 13th St. In 1947, Seeger formed a new band called the Weavers, with Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert and Fred Hellerman. In the crucible of the depression of the 1930's, the poverty was so deep, that many people looked at the concept of Communism for answers to questions of social justice. He was done with it by the time the House Unamerican Activities Committee (HUAC) called him before them in 1955 to answer questions about the nature of his associations. Pete was technically exonerated, but was still guilty in the eyes of folks who agreed with HUAC. He shares a great many stories about the history of songs and how they are used by different ethnic groups and movements within the United States. During the final question and answer session, the big question gets asked: What do you do in the face of a corrupt all-powerful government? He is also an avid participant in a peace vigil, held every Saturday in Wappinger's Falls, in upstate New York at the corner of Routes 9 and 9D from 12 noon to 2pm.
It is our fervent hope that enough of us will rise up to justify Pete's optimism and prove ourselves worthy of his efforts to imbue us with courage and spirit.

Anyone who challenges great numbers of people to fight against the shallow mind control of pop culture is a dangerous man. Pete's knowledge of the historical role of music and its power is vast and he is generous in sprinkling enlightenment between the songs he sings. Whatever associations Pete chose, they were always directed at social justice, and later, environmental preservation. In 1936, at age 16, he heard the five-string banjo for the first time at the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival in Asheville, North Carolina. Pete could back Woody up and wound up hitting the road with him, hitch-hiking and riding trains. Pete got the word to Woody that they'd sung for the striking transport workers union at Madison Square Garden and Woody came east and joined the group.
In 1961, he was sentenced to ten years (for 10 charges) but the years could be served concurrently - so the sentence was actually for one year and a day.
Although he was blacklisted from radio and TV and many concert venues, he had so many sources of income that the detractors were unable to ruin his career the way they had other performers'.
It sails mostly on the Hudson River between New York City and Albany, New York, primarily to offer environmental and biological education programs to school groups, touching on river biology, environmental protection of waterways and related topics, Every year The Great Hudson River revival and Clearwater Festival takes place in mid-June at the incomparably lovely Croton State Park.

In 1943, during his first leave from the Army, he married Toshi, whom he credits with being the support that helped make the rest of his life possible.

Many episodes of our nation's mistreatment of Afro-Americans and Native Americans have been swept under the rug.


From his book, The Incompleat Folk Singer, we learn that he got a ukelele at age eight and, with a friend, performed sea chanteys for the rest of his school. He was not one to knuckle under to any form of dogma, however, and, after about eight years, walked away from the party in 1950, a profoundly anti-Stalinist left winger. They simply wanted to establish that he had belonged to an entity that dared challenge their governance. This session took place at the height of the Vietnam War and, of course, so much of it is relevant today.

He'd harmonize with his brother on Christmas carols, school and camp songs, and he learned the pop songs of the day. Later, back in New York, Pete met Lee Hays, who, like Pete, was planning to write a book of union songs.
It contains a great number of quotes from Pete that describe the core of his philosophical beliefs and some wonderful sing-a-longs. The crux of his stance on social justice can be found in a statement near the beginning: "Are the light-skinned people of the world going to treat the dark skinned people of the world as human beings or as something less than human beings?
But I felt that the world was so messed up that the only honest thing to do was to be a hermit. You're going to be pure yourself and let the rest of the world go to hell?' Whatever you decide to do, don't sit back and say 'Nothing can be done.' The people who will tell you that the human race is going to be 'all over' in a few generationsa€¦ throw their cocksureness right back in their face!
