Rise Up and Sing. Pete Seeger’s 100th

May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $50
Pete Seeger

Come help us celebrate the life and work of Pete Seeger on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth! Pete was born on May 3, 1919. 

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 Sally Rogers – 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 either wrote or led. 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. We urge you to buy in advance as we expect this event to sell out. If you do so, give your name at the “will call list” at the door. Patron tickets include a copy of If I Had a Hammer signed by the artists leading the event. Tickets will be available at the door (space permitting) for a suggested donation of $20-30.  No one turned away for lack of funds.

Solidarity. This concert is the benefit for the Cambridge Material Aids & Advocacy Program (MAAP). This concert will also celebrate the many other groups in the Boston area working for the things Pete and Toshi believed in and worked for. Please contact Jonathan Vogel Borne if your social justice organization would like to table at this concert.
