A Little Night Music

Pete Seeger lived to be 94, but he never grew old.

One bark on “A Little Night Music

  1. When I was a music grad student at UCLA Pete Seeger visited. I sat with him and a few other students in a small seminar room and we talked. I told him I’d learned a little tenor banjo in the New Orleans style and he just riffed on that. Said maybe I should just go to New Orleans, play as a street musician, dress as a clown, and call myself Banjo Tom. I heard from others that he was always making up wild stuff like that.

    It happens that I do live in New Orleans now, though I don’t play on the street. RIP Pete Seeger. We’ll all miss the old buzzard.
