Thread Name: How can one meet (or write) Pete Seeger?
Subject: RE: How can one meet (or write) Pete Seeger?
I mailed him once about a play I was in about Woody Guthrie in which he was depicted and I thought he'd be interested to know the good work that the impact of his music and Woody's was having on kids in special schools.
I made the mistake of putting one of my CDs in as well for him and I think he got deeply offended as he said he receives hundreds (no doubt!) and failed to see the real reason why I mailed him. None the less he replied even if it was a bit gruff in tone and didn't mention the play. I was a bit gutted it is to say the least as he is a bit of a hero to me. But I'm glad he replied. He's still a huge figure, literally. He damn near dwarfs Donavan!
