Pete is gone

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Where have all the flowers gone....

We, banjo lovers and players  all over the world are mourning today: Pete Seeger is gone. Pete Seeger was the first American folk singer I have heard in my life. I was 14 years old, and as soon as I listened to his songs (I think the first one I heard was "down in the valley" ) I decided to learn banjo. His history, his life were, untill the end, an example for all of us. May his music still play for many and many generations.

I am journalist on the french public radio "France Inter". I travelled a lot in my life. When I was at school, at the age of 14, a friend of mine gave me records of "favourite american balads" by Pete Seeger: it was a shock for me! As I got gratuated my mother offered to me my first banjo: a six-string one... I started to play on a 5 string as I was student in a school of journalism in the city of Strasbourg. But it keeps very hard to progress when playing alone or with my brother, who plays guitar. That's why internet is so useful!
