Pete Seeger and Soul Force: Singing Out Hope and Purpose
Guest minister: Sarah Pirtle
Location: Greenfield All Souls UU church
399 Main across from library
Time: 10:30 am. Sunday Jan. 6
They start the service on time and right away there'll be a terrific song from Michael Nix -- one of the last songs Pete wrote. Expect lots of sing-along.
This Sunday Service will share songs that Pete wrote and offer anecdotes of Pete’s courage. Nationally known banjo phenomenon Michael Nix has created beautiful arrangements on his seven string banjar that bring out the spirit of Pete. We'll see how the music of this legendary folksinger connects people to a larger impulse of truth-telling and love for the earth. Sarah got to know Pete when she founded the Children’s Music Network and during gatherings of the People’s Music Network. She comments, “Through his music and his life commitments we felt that he cared for each of us personally because he fueled our longing to contribute to the future of the world.”
SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY MARCH 2
at Ashfield Congregation is the yearly Pete Seeger singalong featuring a dozen different performers.
