Celebrating Pete Seeger – Benefit Concert!

May 3, 2015 @ 4:00pm  – The Brick Church, Union St., Bangor

Join Voices for Peace in a celebration of folk musician and activist, Pete Seeger (1919-2014) for a concert and sing-along on his birthday.  Seeger, who rarely held a concert without inviting folks to join him, kept folk music alive and influenced generations of musicians from Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen to Voices for Peace!

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of Voices for Peace and their community outreach through song. Featured songs will be familiar Seeger including “My Rainbow Race” and “This Land is Your Land” as well as premier choral compositions including “Cuatro Ojos” composed by the late Cathy Jacobs to the poem by alto Judy Williams. All proceeds will benefit the peace work of the Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine.
