Pete's 100th - New Haven
Come to this stirring celebration of the life and work of Pete Seeger on the 100th anniversary of his birth!
Songleader/performers. This concert will feature Annie Patterson & Peter Blood (the creators of the songbooks Rise Up Singing and Rise Again) along with Emma's Revolution (Pat Humphries & Sandy O) and Charlie King - all of whom worked closely with Pete during his lifetime.
Singing together. We will be singing out of If I Had a Hammer, a new collection of songs that Pete wrote or was great at performing and leading. We have created this songbook especially to honor the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth. Copies will be available to borrow or buy at the concert - or you can buy copies now and pick them up when you arrive.
Tickets. You can buy tickets now and pick them up by giving your name at the "will call" list at the door. Patron tickets include a copy of If I Had a Hammer signed by all the artists. Tickets will also be available at the concert for a suggested donation of $20-30. ("Be generous! Be affordable!") No one turned away for lack of funds.
Solidarity. This concert is a benefit for Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services. IRIS provides a variety of services to refugees and immmigrants in Connecticut. The concert will also celebrate and shine a light on the many other groups working in the region for the things Pete and Toshi believed in and worked for. If your organization would like to table during intermission, please contact Paul Hammer.
