Seeger interview to air on WAMC
Listeners can tune into WAMC at 10 a.m. on July 4 to hear a discussion between folk music legend and Clearwater co-founder Pete Seeger and WAMC/Northeast Public Radio President Alan Chartock.
For the 2008 Great Hudson River Revival, also dubbed the Clearwater Festival, Seeger and Chartock took the festival stage in front of an eager audience on the Hudson River’s edges in Croton.
They reminisced about the history and goals of the organization. Most notably Seeger talked about his loving relationship with the river and the sloop Clearwater. Willing viewers joined in when Chartock and Seeger played some tunes together.
Seeger is a legend known for being a folk singer, folk music revivalist and political activist. He also possesses the ability to encourage and motivate young artists like the five-string banjo player who sat right next to him, Alan Chartock.
A previous conversation raised hundreds and thousands of dollars for WAMC as a fund-drive premium.
The recorded conversation can also be received by making a $100 pledge to www.WAMC.org.
