Singin' Pete Seeger in Salmon Arm
Singin’ Pete Seeger
The Wildwood Productions group and Producer Jake Jacobson are pleased to announce that they will be mounting their seventh benefit concert, a tribute to legendary folk singer Pete Seeger, in late March.
Pete began his musical career in the early 1940’s as a way to bring about social justice and equality. He felt the best way to enact change was by having people sing together. He, like others such as Woody Guthrie, travelled the world over with nothing but his voice, a five-string banjo, a guitar, and his musical message and stories.
As well, for many years Pete was a member of The Weavers, a popular folk group which included Ronnie Gilbert who lived at New Denver in BC’s Kootenay District in her later years. Troubadour Seeger also performed at a number of Canadian schools in the 1950’s and 60’s.
Come join the gang and sing along with them as they celebrate Pete Seeger’s musical achievements. Admission is by donation at the door. Proceeds of the show will be donated in support of the proposed Shuswap Performing Arts Centre.
Show dates are Friday, March 22 at 7:30 pm, Saturday, March 23 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 24, at 2:00 pm, in the Shuswap Theatre located on Hudson Street in Salmon Arm.
