Join us at City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, February 15th at 3 p.m. for a tribute to the life and legacy of Pete Seeger with local musician and storyteller, Lee Knight.  Having garnered respect and inspiration for Seeger in high school, Lee would eventually have the opportunity to play with the famed musician on several occasions. Lee recounts meeting Seeger by saying,”I first met Pete backstage after a concert in Saratoga Springs, NY in the late 1960's. My first singing times with him occurred in the summer of 1970 when I crewed on the Hudson River sloop, Clearwater. We were on evening concerts and one afternoon jammed on the deck of the Clearwater.” Lee will play music and talk about Seeger’s life and how he has been influenced by the iconic folk singer and activist.  Attendees are encouraged to sing along and share their recollections of the legacy of Seeger.  For more information please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
