Description by

The legendary Pete Seeger is the greatest influence on the modern Folk music world - many people got their first exposure to folk music through him. Equally known for his work with Woody Guthrie as with The Weavers - the group he himself formed - Seeger sprinkled his concerts and recordings with many different types of music, from Spanish, African, folk, and protest tunes to Negro work songs. This disc showcases this incomparable artist at his performing best.

Product Description:

Personnel: Pete Seeger (vocals, guitar, banjo).
Liner Note Author: Kenneth S. Goldstein.
These 22 tracks are completely delightful, showcasing the great good humor and remarkable musicological breadth of Pete Seeger, sterling qualities that are often clouded by his popular image as a leftist rabble-rouser. From rousing singalongs like "T for Texas" to sweet pop tunes like "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine," with stops for traditional folk ballads like "Erie Canal" and "Greenland Whale Fisheries" and caustic social commentaries like "Money Is King," Seeger covers an impressive range of topics and moods. One unexpected highlight is a lovely batch of melodies played sweetly on a recorder. That there are surprisingly few Seeger live recordings makes CONCERT FOLK SONGS AND BALLADS of historical as well as musical interest.

folk music 101 Music Lover: from CARLTON, GA US -- June, 30, 2017

With a fine selection of American and international folk songs, Pete telling a bit of history with each, and his unadorned guitar and younger, vibrant voice, this is like a crash course in Folk Music. Well worth having!
