Product Description

Review

". . . For his newest work, Seeger teams up with a choir of kids from a local school in his Beacon, NY, hometown. Together, they sing about common-sense green activism and ways to make a better world. . . . This 19-song album uses the children well. The combination of Seeger's ancient, papery voice and the sugar from the kids is often pretty and especially good on "There'll Come a Day.(3 stars)" -- Dan Aquilante, NY Post

"...An inspiring album that captures the great sage of the folk music scene doing something that he's always loved: singing meaningful songs with members of the generation that will carry on making a difference into the future... Now, at 91, Pete Seeger still has more to give and his fingers continue to keep on strumming. And Pete's still got a firm hand on the torch." -- Mike Regenstreif, Folk Roots/Folk Branches blog

"One of the pivotal voices of American folk music, Pete Seeger reaches out to the children on his latest record. That doesn't mean the political messages are no longer there. They certainly are. They're just presented in a fun and educational way for kids, with tunes like `Take It From Dr. King,' `Solartopia,' and classics such as `We Shall Not Be Moved.'" -- Calgary Herald

"There may have been a pied piper with a surer touch for inspiring children to sing and listen than Pete Seeger, but I have never encountered one. Several generations of children's artists owe their careers to Pete, for whom necessity was the mother of countless inventions in how to hold a young audience spellbound. No one has so thoroughly integrated music and storytelling into a unified art form as Pete . . . How lucky we have been, and how fortunate we are, to have this national treasure still among us, and passing on his musicianship, his sense of the past, engagement with the present, and hope for the future to yet another new generation of tomorrow's children." -- Ross Altman, FolkWorks

"With a bunch of friends and neighbors making up the crew, from kids to stars, this is a wild, organic set that is Seeger at his most elemental, charming and socially proactive." -- Chris Spector, Midwest Record, July 24, 2010

What can you say about folksinger/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/environmentalist/builder/activitist/American icon? The guy is a true legend. And, at age 91, he's still cranking out NEW albums. For his last album - 2 years ago - "Pete at 89" - he had help on a lot of the songs, and didn't even appear on a few tracks. This time his is on every track, whether it be providing a spoken introduction, taking lead vocal with his well-worn voice or providing instrumental backing on the banjo or 12-string guitar.

Seeger has always appealed to children. Many of us were raised on his 10-inch albums on Folkways. This is how Seeger is connecting with kids in the 21st century. He made a few visits to the 4th grade class at the elementary school in Beacon, NY where he lives and the kids gravitated to him immediately. Pete had them join him for his annual Martin Luther King Day concert in Beacon and it went over so well, he decided to include them on this album. There are old standard Seeger songs ("WE Shall Not Be Moved", "Quite Early Morning" and, of course, "Turn, Turn, Turn" - with a new intro spoken by Pete) but there are also new songs like "Solartopia" with a guest appearance by Dar Williams. The musicians backing Pete and the "Rivertown Kids" include multi-instrumentalist, composer and author David Amram (here listed as "Dave Amram").

Don't expect dulcet tones from Pete's vocal chords - which obviously are showing their age. But his enthusiasm and love for "the power of song" is highly evident. This is a good album to enjoy with your young kids as a "family event". When they hear the the Rivertown Kids sings along with Pete, they'll want to also. All that's missing are the printed lyrics.

The CD booklet does have brief liner notes on each of the 19 tracks.

If you have even the smallest shred of doubt that music can restore one's faith in the potential of human beings to make the world a better place, please take the time to listen (and then purchase!) this sampling of America's Singing Icon, Pete Seeger's, collection of tunes created with the children of his community in Upstate New York! At 90 years young, Pete's voice wavers and cracks...but his passion, commitment, joy and devotion to the causes of peace, care of the environment, and justice are evident in every single cut! This may be Pete Seeger's own swan song, and it is a pleasure to have in my collection. Give yourself a lift and savor this endeavor!

Even though Pete Seeger's voice has declined by the time this album was made, it's great to hear him and hear what he did with local school children. The songs are contageous--I hum them all the time. Seeger was a true hero.
