Pete Seeger : The Storm King


Pete Seeger has written countless songs, among his most popular are “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “Turn, Turn, Turn!” and “If I Had a Hammer” (“The Hammer Song”), that have all been recorded and performed by other artists. Seeger founded The Weavers and The Almanac Singers and never shying away from stating his true opinion, became blacklisted in the United States during the Joseph McCarthy era and garnered flack for singing songs in protest against the Vietnam War. 



The CD (Pete Seeger: The Storm King) offers spoken word—stories and poems—set to music created by over 50 musicians. The music ranges from African Music, Blues, Bluegrass, Classical Guitar, Folk, Jazz, Native American Music, and Tuvan Throat Singing, performed by such legendary and contemporary artists such as Ralph Stanley, Will Ackerman, Dar Williams, and more.
