Thread Name: Seeger unannounced appearance!
Subject: RE: Seeger unannounced appearance!
I was at the Pete Seeger concert the People's Voice Cafe this past Saturday, and it wasn't entirely unannounced. Janice is right that there were no advertisements, no flyers, and no posters that said Pete would appear. However, the People's Voice did advertise a "Special 25th Anniversary Concert" with the names of the performers to be announced. On Thursday, two days before the show, I received an e-mail from the People's Voice saying that Pete Seeger confirmed that he would one of those performers. What Janice also failed to mention is that after Pete finished his set, the concert continued for another two hours or more with many other artists, some fairly well known and others obscure, doing one song each. It was quite a night.
