'The Life and Music of Pete Seeger'

When you talk about the history of folk music in this country, the conversation will eventually come around to Pete Seeger. For the past six decades Seeger's name, voice and banjo-playing have been associated with keeping traditional music alive and lively.

The Marston Family (Dave, Tami, Sarah and Rose) will be performing a concert in celebration of "The Life and Music of Pete Seeger." Lifelong admirers of Seeger, Rogue Valley performers Dave and Tami Marston will be sharing some of the history of their favorite troubadour's ongoing journey through life and music. Joining Dave and Tami for this concert will be their daughters Sarah, 16, on guitar and vocals, and Rose, 14, on stand-up bass, banjo and vocals. Both girls have been performing with their parents since toddlerhood. The Marston Family's tribute to Seeger will bring fresh and vibrant harmonies to the legacy that is Seeger's music.

Seeger was one of the driving forces behind the folk music revival in the 1950s and 60s. He has appeared on stage with Woody Guthrie, Ledbelly, and as part of The Weavers and appears on many recordings. He has added original songs to the country's folk collection and has taught millions some of the great old songs, keeping them from becoming lost.

Seeger has often used his musical talents to speak out against social injustice. He was recently nominated for consideration as a recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution to the spirit of peace in the world.

Tickets to the concert are $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Tickets will be available at the door.
