Thread Name: Pete Seeger Tribute on Paltalk
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger Tribute on Paltalk
When the Seeger kids were small, they attended the Silver Spring Cooperative Nursery School (in Maryland) with me. Their step-mom Ruth Crawford Seeger came in and gave us all singing lessons---it worked with Pete, Mike and Peggy---unfortunately I never was able to remember lyrics and tunes the way they could. One of the boys (I think it was Pete) had a phenomenal memory when it came to all the verses in one of the Child ballads about one brother murdering another. He deviled his brother with it.
