This time on The 3D RadioActivity, we are paying a tribute to Pete Seeger, a member of what is termed the greatest generation, one of the people who lived through the great depression of the 1920’s, went to battle in World War Two and then came home to build America to the standards which we are accustomed to in the 21st century. We will remember with his ballads played by him solo, with others and by others, along with some conversation with some of his friends.
Pete was one of the most beloved, well-respected artists in the history of American folk music. From his interpretations of old traditional melodies to his original sing-along-friendly songs about peace and perseverance, Seeger was one of the best artists to meet the craft. Right up until the end of his life, Pete could be found wherever there was a song to sing, teaching children old folk tunes and learning the ones they had to teach him. He was not only a great writer, he frequently gave credit by playing and having fun with simple cuts by others. You might say that he was able to wrap the audience right around his finger while he played his banjo.
