Pete Seeger’s 90th birthday bash at MSG May 3 2009

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on March 19, 2009

It’s official. We’ve been asked to play Pete’s big bash. Alert! ‘Sean, your pink light is on!’*

We intend to be there unless we get turned back at the border.

* taken out of context, a bitchy comment by one airline steward to another (hannity?), once heard.

    Its the year of the birthday! Many happy reruns! Viva the Pete, who once picked us up hitchhiking. He talks the talk and he walks the walk and he drives the drive and , most importantly, he sings the song.

    I see Tom Chapin is also on the bill. ☺ and I were thumbing a ride from Saratoga (Kate lived there) back to Montreal one afternoon when along came Tom Chapin, driving a nice car for a folky and said ‘hop in.’ Mighty kind of him too as he didn’t know us from Adam and we didn’t know him from Harry. He dropped us somewhere in the Adirondacks where we were later picked up by a happy holidaying couple in a rented motorhome. Every time that thing took a curve the cupboards flew open and cans of beans and beer were airborne. Must be the way it is in the space station.
