Peter Seeger (1919-2014) is an iconic presence in the 20th Century American music landscape, revered by some and reviled by others for his activism on issues of labor, war, civil rights and the environment.
Pacific Northwest musical duo Hank and Claire sketch the line from Peter Seeger's personal story to the social justice issues that inspired his music. Learn the context for such iconic songs as "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Turn, Turn, Turn".
Of course you are invited to sing along with Hank and Claire, a banjo and 12-string guitar!
