Pete and Peggy Seeger Concert in Woodstock March 17th

Seeger sessions, times 2

Folk singing half-siblings – and let’s face it, living legends – Peggy Seeger and Pete Seeger are appearing at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock in a benefit for the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild on Saturday, March 17. Folk superstar Pete is a household name, but Peggy was destined for greatness, too: Her mother Ruth Crawford Seeger was an influential composer and folklorist and the first woman ever awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship Award for Music; her father Charles Louis Seeger was a pioneering ethnomusicologist and the inventor of the melograph, an electronic musical notation instrument.
