Handy, Spook Remembering Pete Seeger History,
Life Skills- Other,
I had the fortune of performing 50+ concerts and festivals alongside Pete Seeger between 2003 and his passing in 2014, learning many of his songs and the stories behind them – and not only songs he wrote but those of Woody Guthrie and many others. He was a mentor not only of music but of how to be a decent human being. After Pete passed in 2014, I participated in many tribute concerts with the likes of Peter Yarrow, Tom Chapin, David Amram, Guy Davis and others. Now, I have put together a “program” called “Remembering Pete Seeger.” I am presenting it in concert halls, theaters, arts centers, libraries, festivals, summer concert series, and colleges all over the world. “Spook Handy honors the spirit of Pete Seeger, so excellently, by sharing the music with everyone on stage and in the audience in the same way that Pete did. He makes music the star. That’s why Pete loved to play with him so often and why all of us who are still here also do.” … David Amram – recipient of the second annual Pete and Toshi Seeger Power of Song Award.
