Blues Highlight – Pete Seeger and the Blues
Today would have been Pete Seeger’s 100th Birthday. In honor of his musical legacy, we culled through articles and found a special one by Peter Brown. It’s an article he wrote for the “Amerian Blues Scene” in January 29, 2014. His Article captures a side of Pete Seeger that some may not know about and we feel it’s important! Enjoy!
No one would ever say Pete Seeger was a blues singer, or even close. Occasionally, he’d dabble in some “close to blues” songs on his hundreds of albums, but it being Pete Seeger, they would always end up as another folksong. Yet Pete Seeger, in his own way, did a lot for the blues.
