In haste, I drop off 50 digital memories from Saturday night, May 3, 2014.
Happy Traum, extraordinaire everything, MC'd ''Sound Out for Pete'' at the Bearsville Theater.
A collection of American gemstones gathered for a never lonesome tribute to the life of Manhood Hall of Famer, Pete Seeger.
He inspired and mentored millions of musicians yet was able to simultaneously leave them in the dust as an activist, working until his last breath.
May 3rd was the first May 3rd without Pete in 95 years. His Woodstock friends performed a sold out show to benefit a Woodstock schoolhouse.
Everyone was treated to an enormous treat. My role for the evening was to snap a few shots. I'm sharing them now and then retreating back to the Gerde's documentary, POSITIVELY PORCO.
It's got me on the run. Which is a good thing.
I'll be giving a sneak peak May 28th at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation. Cantor Bob Cohen of New World Singers fame is teaching a class and asked if I would show a clip. I will on May 28th. 11AM.
more on that later. or not
So here are the uncaptioned pix.
Thank you Blues Hall of Famer HAPPY TRAUM for being one of the few who can actually hold a candle to Pete.
