Seegers: A Multimedia Project Inspired by the Lives and work of Pete and Ruth Crawford Seeger

When: Fri., April 21, 6-7:30 p.m. 2017

Pete Seeger had no use for the categories into which his work was sometimes forced: he saw music as a means of celebration and communication, a tool in the fight for social and environmental justice, and a way of connecting with people at every walk of life. His stepmother, Ruth Crawford, was even more diverse in her interests, creating powerful modernist classical compositions, as well as anthologizing American folksongs. Produced by One Quiet Plunge, "Seegers" will celebrate the diversity of Pete and Ruth Crawford’s work, juxtaposing new folk-inspired classical music pieces with video projection, poetry, and electronic sound.
