Peggy Seeger's New Song for Pete Seeger's 94th Birthday on May 3
IT'S PETE! (2:58). Credits - words, music copyright, vocals, piano Peggy Seeger, oboe, Kate St. John; recorded by Neill MacColl who also plays bass. Please click here to play the song (MP3) and here for the song in WAV format. You can also visit the song's page on SoundCloud.
Peggy writes: I've always marvelled at Pete's ability to get people to sing together. This song, made for his 94th birthday, was recorded with my son Neill & his sweetie, Kate, is a bit of an extrapolation on that skill of his. I do hope he likes it - but whatever his reaction, I"m sure he will join in on the chorus. Happy birthday, Pete!
A special thank you to Rich Warren and Mark Moss for their special TA!
