Thread Name: Pete Seeger film/DVD: The Power of Song
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger film/DVD: The Power of Song
"You could see that in 2004 at the Toronto Film Festival, in the
"final" farewell performance of the Weavers, as he was joined onstage
by original group members Ronnie Gilbert and Fred Hellerman, who go
back 57 years together, and more recent members Erik Darling and Eric
Weissberg. Missing from the original group was the late Lee Hays, who
co-wrote "If I Had a Hammer."

Hey Eric Weissberg was never in the Weavers. Bernie Krause and I
were and we were ignored.

I have reservations about the nature of this film in terms of accuracy as
a result.
