Visit to Pete Seeger at the Sloop Club in Beacon

Kerry Henderson visited the Sloop Club in Beacon on 1st March.  The Sloop Club is base of operations for environmental boats The Clearwater and The Arlo Guthrie, and a monthly Song Circle.  The circle is organized along purely democratic lines, with each singer/musician given an opportunity to sing one song going around the circle. It attracts amazing international talent along with local singer/songwriters .

Kerry enjoyed the privilege of meeting Pete Seeger for the first time.  Mr Seeger has done as much for folk music in the 20th Century as Schubert did for the Art Song in the 19th.  At the grand age of 93, he is a true living  legend.
