Pete Seeger Festival at Tompkins Corners Cultural Center

May 5 @ 12:00 pm

Our friends at Tompkins Corners Cultural Center are hosting their eighth annual Pete Seeger Festival!  Celebrate the musical, environmental and humanitarian legacy of our neighbor, mentor and friend. And of course, Sustainable Putnam will be there with information and resources to help you to help life on our planet.

This is a FREE, family-friendly event that will be outdoors if the weather permits or indoors if it rains. Donations will be gratefully accepted and shared with local organizations that Pete created, including the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, the Beacon Sloop Club, and the River Pool at Beacon.

The musicians that come play for us were all Pete’s friends, who performed with him, sailed with him on the sloops Clearwater and Woody Guthrie, and worked with him at the Beacon Sloop Club. In addition to singing Pete’s songs and their own, they will reminisce about the man who inspired so many people in the course of his 94 years.
