Thread Name: Quintessential Pete Seeger Recordings?
Subject: Quintessential Pete Seeger Recordings?
The thread on Pete Seeger's lost-and-found banjo got me thinking. The person who found and returned the banjo had never heard of Pete Seeger! As a music teacher, I got to thinking- have I spend enough time naming the living legends of our time? I'm planning to introduce the kids (ages 5-11) to Pete's music but only have a few very old vinyl lps with songs mostly geared to kids. They are great, but there's much more to Pete. What would you recommend to a school with a limited budget if you could only buy one or two of Pete's recordings?
