Pete's 100th - Schenectady NY

ADVANCE SALES ARE CLOSED BUT YOU CAN STILL BUY TICKETS AT THE DOOR.

Come help us celebrate the life and work of Pete Seeger! Pete was born on May 3rd, 1919. We will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth on Friday, April 26th in Schenectady!

***NOTE FOR TICKET PURCHASES: Unfortunately, our website is not giving email receipts at this time. Even though you will not receive an email confirmation you should be given a 4 digit number confirmation. Once you purchase a ticket your name and ticket order will be put on a list for a "will call" table the night of the concert. If you need an email receipt or have questions about your ticket order you can email us rasongbook@gmail.com. We apologize for this inconvenience!  

Songleader/performers. This concert will feature Annie Patterson & Peter Blood (the creators of the songbooks Rise Up Singing and Rise Again) along with the beloved folksinger/activists Emma's Revolution 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 pre-order copies now to pick up when you arrive. 

Tickets. You can buy advance tickets now on this site: give your name at the "will call" list at the door. Tickets also will be available (space-permitting) at the door for a suggested donation of $20 at the door ("Be generous! Be affordable!")  No one turned away for lack of funds.

Solidarity. The concert will celebrate the many groups in the capitol region working for the kind of world that Pete & Toshi devoted their lives to. If your social justice group would like to table during the intermission, please contact Sue Marino.
