Pete Seegar, singer songwriter, who spent a long career championing folk music as both a vital heritage and a catalyst for social change, died this week aged 94.
He wrote the some iconic songs. Where have all the Flowers gone stays in my memory as very sad, but so powerful. He sang for civil rights marches and anti-Vietnam War rallies in the 1960s. Most often playing his 12-string guitar or five-string banjo, he sang all kinds of songs, humorous tunes and earnest anthems, always encouraging listeners to join in.
Why not go back in time to the 60s and 70s? We have such a wonderful boho holiday apartment in Brighton – Marine Parade, waiting for you. Quirky and interesting, and it has even got a record player where you can test out our old vinyl.
