Pete Seeger

Remember yesterday when I said I had no interest in an email from the PR machine? It’s times like that, when it occurs to me to write those sentences, that I should remember that the universe is hilarious and thinks jokes on you are too. One Perrin Doniger proved that when he sent along an email about a stream, the first of it’s kind, of a concert Pete Seeger recorded at Bowdoin College in March of 1960.

8 reel-to-reel tapes. All recorded live. That sentence is bolded because sweet Jesus, it deserves to be.

On 17 April, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings will release this 2-disc set, The Complete Bowdoin College Concert 1960. Below you’ll find a link to a lovely interview with Seeger (because all interviews with Seeger are lovely) and a link to stream to show before it’s official release next month. I highly suggest you get on that…
