You know John - I don't think you play the banjo, and I don't see you out there leading songs andRead More keeping the folk traditions alive. I also don't believe that you were a wage worker during the depression - disillusioned by what the capitalists had done to the economy and tempted by a system that looked, at the time a whole lot better. I personally, include Pete Seeger in the top three people that I would have liked to meet. He was a great man. But then again, I play the banjo, I sing and lead songs and keep the folk tradition alive.

Actually I have (and continue to) played the piano for over 60 years and have been keeping my kindRead More of traditional "folk" music alive....R&B, rockabilly, doowop, honky tonk, gospel, calypso (1940's -1960's) as well as big band and jazz from the 1920's-1940's. I've played solo, in bands, sung lead and still do....practice tomorrow. While I can appreciate the music I realize that these artists weren't gods to worship. Their lives weren't paragons of virtue to be emulated. I can appreciate Seeger's music but I also realize he was a deeply flawed individual when it came to political thought. It took him over 40 years after Stalin's death to admit he was mistaken. Better late than never.

Warning, tried to go to website and my computer warned against it as site was not secure - I clickedRead More on going to it anyway and you absolutely cannot get to it without giving them your info via creating your e-mail info, or signing in via twitter or facebook. To me this is a big no-no if you cannot check out their ideals before signing on. Not happy! Obviously did not go further - I did want to check them out, sounded good but why this ??
