  1. Hi, Is Pete going to be at Madison Square park, in NYC. on Oct..10th?? hum. it seems to be on my calendar,Thanks.

  2. wish I could be there….

  3. My dad has been collecting folk music for most of his life, so I was weaned on the stuff. I remember the Weavers very well, and Pete Seeger has always been important to me. I remember as a young teenager, asking my dad to dig up the album with Little Boxes so I could learn to sing it too (Yep, I looked up information about Malvina Reynolds later).

    Just lately, past the age of 50 years, I’ve begun writing a few songs myself as well as singing at coffee houses on open-mike nights, so I think back even more to Pete Seeger as well as to many others, from Burl Ives to Tom Paxton. Thank you always!
