Based on research done for music for the Genesee Country Village & Museum with Flint Hill Folk, Cathy McGrath presents a program of nineteenth century music in period costume, “Songs That Never Grow Old”, from the book of the same title, published in 1903, which states that it is a “collection of old-time songs that have long been tried and forever loved”. These songs are part of our collective past, yet still resonate today. The audience is encouraged to participate. An experienced folk music performer, Cathy uses a 1870’s guitar, limberjacks, antique flute, and rolled tin whistle in her historical programs which are tailored for specific age groups. Additional performers may be added.

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.
