TURN, TURN, TURN!: REMEMBERING PETE SEEGER
The Eighth Step at Proctors, Schenectady
8pm Friday (April 4), $15

The Eighth Step welcomes several long-time musician friends and others whose performing lives were intertwined with Pete Seeger’s. Several of the performers appeared frequently with Pete Seeger including singer-songwriter Dan Einbender (Grammy Award winner for the CD Pete Seeger & the Rivertown Kids), the honey-voiced Hudson Valley quintet Betty & the Baby Boomers (who will be joined by Celtic harpist Lynn Saoirse) and Albany’s own Ruth Pelham (the Queen of the Music Mobile). The evening will also feature short video clips of Pete Seeger and an exhibit of Seeger images by photographer Robert Corwin. Wanda Fischer (host and producer of WAMC-FM’s “Hudson River Sampler”) and Eighth Step director Margie Rosenkranz (former artistic director for Seeger’s Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival festival) will co-host the festivities.
