Seeger, Seeger and Davis

Posted by JohnB on Friday, September 12, 2008

Last night I finally got the chance to see Pete Seeger perform. For years, he has been one of my heros (for many reasons) - but I never had the opportunity to see him play live. At age 89 he is still a commanding stage presence. He appeared with his grandson, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger and Guy Davis. The three of them put on a great show with Tao and Guy (great performers themselves) sharing the stage and blending their musical styles with Pete's. If anybody get's the chance to see this show, it is well worth it.

I remember the one Peter Paul & Mary concert I got to go to.  Wow! My daughter was 4 and she got to shake hands with Puff the Magic Dragon's father.  She still remembers that concert - I don't think she ever washed her hand again.

Hey, I wasnt' through.

Pete Seeger was another one I always hoped I get to see.  That man is old and still playing.  I have hope I may some day play a third as well as he does.  I do have a long-necked banjo I got after seeing him play one.

John: Where did you see them perform? I know he doesn't live far from you.

They were in Ridgefield, CT  - probably an hour and a half from Beacon NY where he lives.

John, I love it when Pete and Tao are BOTH on stage with those matching long-scale 12 strings...by the way, those 12s were built by Bruce Taylor...about 30 miles from you in Weston CT...
