To Everything There is a Season: Pete Seeger and American Song


Free presentation by Pete Seeger's biographer detailing his contributions to American life and featuring many of Seeger's best-loved songs.

Pete Seeger, the father of the folk revival of the 1950s and 1960s, wrote a number of songs that have become classics. Allan Winkler, an American historian, wrote a biography of Pete and in the course of that project, visited regularly with him, and played music with him each time. Today’s program describes these visits, and highlights Seeger’s involvement in every major social movement of the 20th century: the labor movement; the civil rights struggle; the Vietnam War protest; and the environmental movement. This session will describe Pete’s contributions to American life. And with Winkler’s guitar accompaniment, it will include a dozen of his best-loved songs. This community presentation is free, but donations to help the Opera House are welcome at the door. Doors for seating open at 3:30 pm. No tickets required. Refreshments available at the bar (cash only). Please do not bring food or drinks to any Opera House event.
