An Honest Man…

Thats the impression I have always had of Pete Seeger.

My path has crossed Pete Seeger’s a couple of time. In the 70s I hung around the folk/ bluegrass scene.

Pete Seeger, Doc Watson and his son, Merle; Flatt n Scruggs, Emy Lou… and others were common performers as well as casual participants at weekend-long “festivals”. It was usual to be hanging where performers were simply enjoying the scene.

Those were the days…

I spoke to and listened to Pete Seeger and, though a punk kid, I was impressed. He struck me as a totally honest man.

Guess I’ll go listen to some folk music…

Here’s to Pete…
