Subject: RE: How can one meet (or write) Pete Seeger?
Unfortunately, even if you meet Pete, he may not remember you very well. I have known him for over 40 years, learning vocal production from him, accompanying him as a Sloop Singer and in various venues but a couple of years ago, when I introduced him to Lady Hillary, he told me that he knew he knew me but that he had forgotten my name as his memory was going. Other than the memory issue, he is still the same gentleman he has always been.
I disagree with Frank. If you can, meet him and try to spend a few minutes talking with him. If you cannot, read his literature. In either case, look at the causes he has espoused and work to improve your local world. You, too, can change the world.
