Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Axe- fact or urban legend?
In 1957, or 1958, Pete gave a concert at the Moore Theater in Seattle. He also brought along Sonny Terry and J C burris. At that concert, the stage crew brought a decent sized log on stage and an axe. Pete started chopping to "Didn't Old John ... CHOP ... Cross the Water ... CHOP" It brought down the house.
