Pete Seeger to lead a rare concert in Dobbs Ferry to benefit several local groups The Take Me To The River Children’s Community Chorus debuts in a concert guided by legendary folk singer Pete Seeger at 7 p.m. Dec. 10 at South Presbyterian Church, 343 Broadway in Dobbs Ferry.
The chorus, ages 6 to 12, is comprised of Hastings-on-Hudson residents and the Westhab organizations’ community-based youth program at the Coachman Shelter in White Plains.
The concert will feature a dozen songs, most written by Seeger. Local singer/songwriters Jenny Murphy and Matt Turk provide additional musical direction, vocal guidance and instrumental accompaniment.
Following the concert, Seeger will sign copies of his recently updated “Where Have All The Flowers Gone, A Singalong Memoir,” which includes a CD with examples from 267 songs. The book will be on sale at the event for a discounted price of $20, with all proceeds going to Clearwater.org. Concert-goers are asked to bring a can of food, for donation to The Coachmen Shelter.
