Pete Seeger performed by Tim Holt
Join us for Tim Holt at the Redding Library! In this one-man performance, Tim Holt portrays Pete Seeger, who tells his life story and sings songs from the various chapters in his life. In this presentation Pete talks about growing up in a musical family, his travels around the country with Woody Guthrie, singing with the Almanacs and the Weavers, and his involvement in causes that include the labor movement, the civil rights movement, and cleaning up the Hudson River near his home. And of course Pete will encourage audience members to join with him on songs that include “If I Had A Hammer,” “We Shall Overcome,” “Union Maid,” and “This Land.” Tim Holt has been performing music programs in West Coast venues for a couple of decades. His interest in Pete Seeger and folk music dates back to the Folk Music Revival of the 1960s, when he learned to play the banjo one summer using Pete Seeger’s “How To Play The Five-String Banjo” instruction manual.
