After playing alongside Pete Seeger more than 50 times from 2003 to 2013, I am recording a CD and touring throughout the U.S., Canada, and other parts of the globe to share Pete’s songs, stories and message because I am determined to “KEEP THE FLAME ALIVE." I need your help!
A Shared Message
It may come as a surprise to those who know me and my mission that I knew very little about Pete Seeger before we met in 2003. I had heard his name and knew he had written "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "If I Had a Hammer," but I had no idea what an amazing human being he was. After getting to know him, I agree with Harry Belafonte that Pete's image should be carved into Mount Rushmore. Pete was as much the … [Continue reading...]

Remembering Pete Seeger:
The world doesn't seem the same without Pete.
It's been a sad, difficult two weeks since Pete passed. I've been writing articles for newspapers, recording spots for radio shows, and talking to people on the phone for long periods of time. I have been able to make it up to Beacon a bunch of times to gather with friends and family. I really missing the guy.
Pete and I played together over 50 times since we met in 2003 and we talked on the phone probably twice a month, sometimes for over an hour. We'd talk about philosophy, the population, early hominids, the founders of this nation, Abraham Lincoln, Native Americans, Ben Franklin, the Neanderthal, Shakespeare, the Bible, Woody Guthrie, Ledbelly, Martin Luther King, new songs he or I was working on, trees, … [Continue reading...]

A artist biography is an attempt to offer the reader an opportunity to discover a musical environment, an atmosphere, the songwriter’s inner being, personality, his emotions and inspiration, that which emanates from his creativity. His musical journey.
For some it begins early in life and takes years or what seems like a lifetime to surge. John Seeger was definitely born a musician. Learning, practicing and mastering guitar was as much an everyday occupation to him as speaking Japanese and Spanish fluently, obtaining his black belt in karate, creating and building his successful NYC-based construction company, raising his 19 year old daughter and tending to his home and family. It may have seemed at times, even to John, that music was just another one of his passions and thirsts. Except … [Continue reading...]
