The Life and Music of Pete Seeger on His 100th Birthday! @West

Pete Seeger
May 3, 2019 - 4:30pm-5:30pm (ended)

In this one-man performance, Tim Holt portrays Pete Seeger, celebrating the folk icon’s life through story and song on his 100th Birthday! He talks about growing up in a musical family, his travels around the country with Woody Guthrie, singing with the Almanacs and the Weavers, and his involvement in social causes like the labor and civil rights movements. And, of course, Pete will encourage the audience to join in singing songs like "If I Had A Hammer," "We Shall Overcome," and "This Land."

Tim Holt has been performing music programs in West Coast venues for a number of years. His interest in Pete Seeger and folk music dates back to the Folk Revival of the 1960s, when he learned to play the banjo one summer using Seeger's How To Play The Five-String Banjo instruction manual.
