Thread Name: Happy! - May 3 (Pete Seeger born, 1919)
Subject: RE: Happy! - May 3 (Pete Seeger born, 1919)
When I was 12 years old, I went to a "settlement" camp in Beacon, NY. I remember sitting outside after dinner and Pete Seeger would come with his banjo and teach us folksongs. I am now 65 years old, and I never have stopped loving folk music by Pete Seeger and all the other folk musicians. Ironically, I am now married to a professional mandolinist.
Thank you for initiating me to the wonderful world of folk music.
Happy, happy 90th(can it be?)birthday!
