Singing for Pete Seeger

A Besere Velt (A Better World) and Emma's Revolution made a stellar team at our Pete Seeger Tribute Concert. Pat Humphries and Sandy O of Emma's Revolution told stories of their friendship and work with Pete, and led our nearly 350-person audience in singing If I Had a Hammer and Turn, Turn, Turn - as well as some of Pete's less-known tunes, including To My Old Brown Earth. We heard the songs Pat and Sandy sung to Pete in his last days, and joined together to sing of hope and activism, memorializing Pete with joy, community, and togetherness.
