Pete Seeger died. He was another of my heroes. He was deeply committed to the cause of right against wrong. He was a musician and story teller sublime. He held fast to his roots and rights despite many attempts by the governments and right wing in the USA to dissuade him, and usually by foul means. He was a true gentleman. I had a few wonderful conversations with him, including a couple when I was with Bernice Johnson Reagon. The two of them were old friends from the Civil Rights days, and Bernice named her daughter Toshi after Pete’s wife, Toshi. They had helped Bernice when the FBI were hunting and haunting her.
Thanks for all of your songs, and music, and commitment. We need heroes like yourself.
BOY play Sao Paulo tonight and Porto Alegre on Saturday.
