David LaMotte, who has helped the Council with its peace work for several years, wrote a lovely remembrance of Pete Seeger earlier this week.
Pete touched my life deeply, as he did so many others, across space and generations. I had one chance to meet him and to perform with him, and spent a bit of time in conversation with him that day as well. I don’t want to claim a closer relationship than I had — that was the only time our paths crossed in person. That one day taught me a great deal, though.
You can read all of David’s words here.
And for a little bit from the man himself, here’s just one special performance.
