Summary

An autobiography in words and songs by one of the most influential figures in American music. Originally published in 1993, this is the essential book by and about Pete Seeger for those who admire him and love his music. From the 1940s when he began playing with Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly, through his fifty years of activism, Seeger has always held the belief that everyone should be able to participate in making music, and this musical memoir is the perfect place to start. This revised and expanded volume�including a CD with examples from 267 songs�shares the personal stories and historical context surrounding some of Seeger�s most familiar and beloved tunes. Commenting on everything from songwriting to social activism, this autobiographical songbook includes lyrics, music, and chords to more than 300 songs, plus personal observations, anecdotes, and more than 100 photos and drawings. 100+ illustrations; 300+ musical selections.
