Perhaps no single person of the 20th century has done more to preserve, broadcast and redistrubute folk music than Pete Seeger. His passion for politics, the environment, and humanity have earned him both artdent fans and vocal enemies since he first began performing in the 1930s.
This program features Mark Dvorak leading the audience through some of Pete Seeger’s best-known songs. “If I Had a Hammer,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?,” “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine,” “Turn, Turn, Turn” and others have become standard in the American folk repertoire.
Dvorak has followed in the musical footsteps of Seeger as a musician, educator and community builder. Since 1986, he has been on faculty at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk music, where he is Artist-In-Residence. He performed with Seeger on a handful of occasions and toured with WeaverMania! for six years performing Seeger’s role as singer, storyteller and banjo player and has given hundreds of presentations on American folk music in elementary schools and for community organizations across the country.
The program can be adapted as a performance or as a sing-along concert with lyric sheets made available.
