In 1957, Mo Asch, the founder of Folkways Records, asked Pete to embark on an amazing recording project. These beautiful recordings are starkly simple: just Pete singing alone with guitar or banjo in front of a microphone - singing 140 traditional songs.
The result is one of the most important set of records ever made. You may well have sung these songs as a child around the campfire or piano. Many of the traditional songs and ballads in Rise Up Singing are on these CD's are in Rise Up Singing or Rise Again.
These have now been re-issued on five CDs. We no longer sell these as separate CDs but you can order the complete box set of all 5 CDs (volumes 1 thru 5) for just $40 (only $8 per CD). This terrific classic full box set includes six hours of Pete Seeger singing many of this country's best-loved songs!
