Thread Name: Forgive my ignorance-is Pete Seeger still alive
Subject: RE: Forgive my ignorance-is Pete Seeger still alive
Pete lives in Beacon, NY, next to the Hudson River. I presently live about 1/2 hr east of him. About 4 or 5 years ago, the Dain family, owners of a hardware and lumberyard business, in Peekskill, NY, celebrated their 150th yr anniversary of their business with a concert in front of their business on Water St. in Peekskill, NY. The main act was Pete Seeger, who is, not only a friend of the owners, but a regular customer as well. When Pete was done singing, he walked off the stage and into the lumberyard to unwind and I followed him there, got to shake his hand, and chatted with him for awhile, a most memorable meeting, indeed.
