Thread Name: Pete Seeger playing the recorder
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger playing the recorder
Pete's father Charles Seeger was a musicologist who would have known what was happening in the early days of the early music revival. He was also a friend of Henry Cowell, who wrote some music for recorders. (Cowell was responsible for Charles Seeger becoming a student of Ruth Crawford - they eventually married).
