In a new and expanded version of their tribute to folk legend Pete Seeger, who died this year aged 94, Jimmy Ross and Finlay Allison are joined by fiddler Gillian Frame, a former young traditional musician of the year, and Penny Stone, a singer/songwriter and peace activist.
They will perform Seeger’s own songs, Waist deep in the big muddy, talking union and turn! turn! turn! among others, as well as other tunes he popularised such as Pastures of Plenty and deportee by Woody guthrie and lead belly’s irene, goodnight.
The show also features archive pictures, including one of him performing at St andrew’s halls in glasgow, which illustrate the fascinating story of Seeger’s life; covering his music and friendship with guthrie and lead belly, his activism and persecution during the mccarthy era, his involvement in the civil rights movement and his opposition to the vietnam War.
