Honoring Pete Seeger’s Vision

May 22, 2014: 6:30PM to 9:30PM
2 West 64th St., New York, NY map

NYC Friends of Clearwater with the NY Society for Ethical Culture presents a night of song and remembrances of what Pete Seeger wanted for this planet and all people.

Pete Seeger touched so very many people’s lives. Even people who don’t immediately know the name, know his songs. The man and his music sang out for social justice, environmental justice, peace and equality.

Veteran performers include the WalkAbout Clearwater Chorus, David Amram, Guy Davis, Christine Lavin, Oscar Brand, Charlie King, Happy Traum, David Bernz. You’ll also hear the next generation heirs of Pete’s legacy, Jacob Bernz and Matt Emmer.

Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper, will join speakers including Manna Jo Greene, Environmental Action Director of Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, and Chief Oren Lyons, a Faithkeeper for the Onondaga Nation.

Sloop club representatives from up and down the Hudson will share how Pete inspired them, including NYCFC past presidents Talbot Katz and Jeanne Stork, presidents Ed Dlugosz of NJ Friends of Clearwater, Saul Rozinsky of Beacon Sloop Club, Marcia Kaplan-Mann of Brooklyn Sloop Club, Warren Lindstrom of Riverlovers, Chris Greico of Ferry Sloops and Donna Stein of NYC Friends of Clearwater. Susan Murphy of Ulster Friends of Clearwater sends her best anecdote.
