See also

Pete Seeger built community by inviting people sing together with him. To honor his life and work for peace and social justice, the Columbus Folk Music Society is sponsoring a sing-along on Sunday, February 16 from 3 to 5 p.m.

The free hootenanny will be held at the Columbus Mennonite Church, 35 East Oakland Park in Clintonville.

Bill Cohen on guitar, Carl Yaffey on banjo, and Jackie LaMuth on bass will lead the crowd in singing songs that Pete wrote or helped to make popular, including "If I Had a Hammer," "We Shall Overcome," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," and "Turn Turn Turn."

Other songs from the folk music revival of the 1950s and 1960s will also be featured, including "Puff the Magic Dragon," "This Land is Your Land," and "Blowin' in the Wind."

Young and old alike are invited to raise their voices in song, just as Pete would have liked it. Admission is free, but donations will be welcome to benefit the Folk Music Society.

For more information, contact Bill Cohen at (614) 263-3851 or billcohen@columbus.rr.com.
