Princeton Folk Music Society presents “A Visit with Pete Seeger”


The Princeton Folk Music Society presents a celebration of the legacy of Pete Seeger with Professor Allan Winkler at 8 p.m. Friday, April 19, at Christ Congregation Church, 50 Walnut Lane, Princeton, N.J.

Seeger (1919-2014) was one of the most influential figures in American folk music. He found himself in the forefront of every important social movement of the past 70 years. Seeger wrote or popularized many of the landmarks of the folk song movement, including “If I Had a Hammer,” “Turn Turn Turn,” and “Where Have All the Flowers gone?”

Winkler is a retired history professor and a performing musician. He is the author of “To Everything There is a Season: Pete Seeger and the Power of Song” (New York, Oxford University Press, 2009).

Winkler’s presentation is scholarly, but it also is founded on Seeger’s belief that music is meant to be sung, and on his commitment to getting audiences to join in singing.
