The New York Packet to Host 'Pete Seeger Memorial Sing', 3/2The New York Packet, singers of songs of the sea, will celebrate the life, music and spirit of Pete Seeger. Pete Seeger worked tirelessly for the betterment of society and the environment. He felt that music was a powerful tool to influence his fellow citizens young and old. His spirit lives on and grows as people follow his humble but powerful lead in the fight for equal rights and to clean up the environment. The concert tribute is set for Sunday, March 2 from 2 to 5 p.m.

A number of special musical guests with connections to Pete and the Clearwater have been invited. As Pete would want, everyone is encouraged to join in, not just a concert, a sing along!

This is a "Free will donation" event. All the balance after expenses will be sent to the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

The gathering takes place from 2:00 - 5:00PM, at the John St. Church, 44 John Street, in lower Manhattan, NYC. This event is co-sponsored by the Folk Music Society of NY (aka NY Pinewoods Folk Music Club). The closest subway stations are Broadway/Nassau (A & C lines) and Fulton Street (2, 3, 4 & 5 lines). John Street is 1 block south of Fulton Street.

Let's raise our voices together to honor this giant of a man who embodied the spirit of folk music and understood the power of song.
