Presidentan album in support of Roosevelt and the war effort. The title song, "Dear Mr. President", was a solo by Pete Seeger, and its lines expressed his lifelong credo:. Now, Mr. Now, as I think of our great land So, Mr. Seeger's critics, however, continued to bring up the Almanacs' repudiated Songs for John Doe. Ina year after the John Doe album's brief appearance and disappearancethe FBI decided that the now-pro-war Almanacs were still endangering the war effort by subverting recruitment.
JacksonVice President of Time magazine, had founded " Seeger served in the U, Where Have All The Flowers Gone - Various - American Ballads (CD). Army in the Pacific. He was trained as an airplane mechanic, but was reassigned to entertain the American troops with music. Later, when people asked him what he did in the war, he always answered: "I strummed my banjo.
Wallacewho ran as a third-party candidate on the Progressive Party ticket. Despite having attracted enormous crowds nationwide, however, Wallace won only in New York City, and following the election, he was excoriated for accepting the help in his campaign of Communists and fellow travelers, such as Seeger and singer Paul Robeson.
Seeger had been a fervent supporter of the Republican forces in the Spanish Civil War. As a self-described "split tenor" between a tenor and a countertenor Pete Seeger was a founding member of two highly influential folk groups: the Almanac Singers and the Weavers. The Almanac Singers, which Seeger co-founded in with Millard Lampell and Arkansas singer and activist Lee Hayswas a topical group, designed to function as a singing newspaper promoting the industrial unionization movement,  racial and religious inclusion, and other progressive causes.
As a controversial Almanac singer, the year-old Seeger performed under the stage name "Pete Bowers" to avoid compromising his father's government career. Inthe Almanacs were reconstituted as the Weavers, named after the title of an play by Gerhart Hauptmannabout a workers' strike which contained the lines, "We'll stand it no more, come what may!
They did benefits for strikers, at which they sang songs such as 'Talking Union', about the struggles for unionisation of industrial workers such as miners and auto mobile workers. In the atmosphere of the s red scare, the Weavers' repertoire had to be less overtly topical than that of the Almanacs had been, and its progressive message was couched in indirect language — arguably rendering it even more powerful.
The Weavers on occasion performed in tuxedos unlike the Almanacs, who had dressed informally and their managers refused to let them perform at political venues. The Weavers' string of major hits began with " On Top of Old Smoky " and an arrangement of Lead Belly 's signature waltz, " Goodnight, Irene ",  which topped the charts for 13 weeks in  and was covered by many other pop singers. The Weavers' performing career was abruptly derailed inat the peak of their popularity, when blacklisting prompted radio stations to refuse to play their records and all their bookings were canceled.
They briefly returned to the stage, however, at a sold-out reunion at Carnegie Hall in and in a subsequent reunion tourwhich produced a hit version of Merle Travis Where Have All The Flowers Gone - Various - American Ballads (CD) " Sixteen Tons ", as well as LPs of their concert performances.
In the late s, the Kingston Trio was formed in direct imitation of and homage to the Weavers, covering much of the latter's repertoire, though with a more buttoned-down, uncontroversial, and mainstream collegiate persona.
The Kingston Trio produced another phenomenal succession of Billboard chart hits and in its turn spawned a legion of imitators, laying the groundwork for the s commercial folk revival. In the documentary film Pete Seeger: The Power of SongSeeger states that he resigned from the Weavers when the three other band members agreed to perform a jingle for a cigarette commercial. InSeeger wrote the first version of his now-classic How to Play the Five-String Banjoa book that many banjo players credit with starting them off on the instrument.
He went on to invent the Long Neck or Seeger banjo. This instrument is three frets longer than a typical banjo, is slightly longer than a bass guitar at 25 frets, and is tuned a minor third lower than the normal 5-string banjo. Hitherto strictly limited to the Appalachian region, [ citation needed ] the five-string banjo became known nationwide as the American folk instrument par excellence, largely thanks to Seeger's championing of and improvements to it.
According to an unnamed musician quoted in David King Dunaway 's biography, "by nesting a resonant chord between two precise notes, a melody note and a chiming note on the fifth string", Pete Seeger "gentrified" the more percussive traditional Appalachian "frailing" style, "with its vigorous hammering of the forearm and its percussive rapping of the fingernail on the banjo head.
From the late s on, Seeger also accompanied himself on the string guitaran instrument of Mexican origin that had been associated with Lead Bellywho had styled himself "the King of the String Guitar". Seeger's distinctive custom-made guitars had a triangular soundhole. He combined the long scale length approximately 28" and capo-to-key techniques that he favored on the banjo with a variant of drop-D DADGBE tuningtuned two whole steps down with very heavy strings, which he played with thumb and finger picks.
Inthen "Peter" Seeger see film credits and his wife, Toshi, traveled to Port of Spain, Trinidadto seek out information on the steelpansteel drum or "ping-pong" as it was sometimes called.
The two searched out a local panyard director Isaiah and proceeded to film the construction, tuning and playing of the then new, national instrument of Trinidad-Tobago. He was attempting to include the unique flavor of the steel pan into American Folk music. In the s and indeed consistently throughout his life, Seeger continued his support of civil and labor rights, racial equality, international understanding, and anti-militarism all of which had characterized the Wallace campaign and he continued to believe that songs could help people achieve these goals.
However, with the ever-growing revelations of Joseph Stalin 's atrocities and the Hungarian Revolution ofhe became increasingly disillusioned with Soviet Communism. He left the CPUSA inbut remained friends with some who did not leave it, although he argued with them about it. Alone among the many witnesses after the conviction and imprisonment of the Hollywood Ten for contempt of Congress, Seeger refused to plead the Fifth Amendment which would have asserted that his testimony might be self-incriminating and instead, as the Hollywood Ten had done, refused to name personal and political associations on the grounds that this would violate his First Amendment rights: "I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or Where Have All The Flowers Gone - Various - American Ballads (CD) beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs.
I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this. He was convicted in a jury trial of contempt of Congress in Marchand sentenced to ten 1-year terms in jail to be served simultaneouslybut in Mayan appeals court ruled the indictment to be flawed and overturned his conviction.
Inthe San Diego school board told him that he could not play a scheduled concert at a high school unless he signed an oath pledging that the concert would not be used to promote a communist agenda or an overthrow of the government. Seeger refused, and the American Civil Liberties Union obtained an injunction against the school district, allowing the concert to go on as scheduled. Almost 50 years later, in Februarythe San Diego School District officially extended an apology to Seeger for the actions of their predecessors.
To earn money during the blacklist period of the late s and early s, Seeger worked gigs as a music teacher in schools and summer camps, and traveled the college campus circuit. He also recorded as many as five albums a year for Moe Asch 's Folkways Records label. As the nuclear disarmament movement picked up steam in the late s and early s, Seeger's anti-war songs, such as, " Where Have All the Flowers Gone?
Seeger also was closely associated with the Civil Rights Movement and in helped organize a landmark Carnegie Hall concert, featuring the youthful Freedom Singersas a benefit for the Highlander Folk School in Tennessee.
He sang it on the mile walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, along with 1, other marchers. To describe the Where Have All The Flowers Gone - Various - American Ballads (CD) crop of politically committed folk singers, he coined the phrase "Woody's children", alluding to his associate and traveling companion, Woody Guthrie, who by this time had become a legendary figure. This urban folk-revival movement, a continuation of the activist tradition of the s and s and of People's Songsused adaptations of traditional tunes and lyrics to effect social change, a practice that goes back to the Industrial Workers of the World or Wobblies' Little Red Song Bookcompiled by Swedish-born union organizer Joe Hill — Seeger toured Australia in That tour sparked a folk boom throughout the country at a time when popular music tastes, post- Kennedy assassinationcompeted between folk, the surfing crazeand the British rock boom which gave the world the Beatles and The Rolling Stonesamong others.
Folk clubs sprung up all over the nation, folk performers were accepted in established venues, and Australian performers singing Australian folk songs — many of their own composing — emerged in concerts and festivals, on television, and on recordings, and overseas performers were encouraged to tour Australia.
The long television blacklist of Seeger began to end in the mids, when he hosted a regionally broadcast, educational, folk-music television show, Rainbow Quest. In NovemberSeeger wrote and recorded the anti-death penalty song "Delbert Tibbs", about the death-row inmate Delbert Tibbswho was later exonerated. Seeger wrote the music and selected the words from poems written by Tibbs. Seeger also supported the Jewish Camping Movement. There are multiple versions of what went on, some fanciful.
Two days earlier, there had been a scuffle and brief exchange of blows between Grossman and Alan Lomax, and the Board in an emergency session had voted to ban Grossman from the grounds, but had backed off when George Wein pointed out that Grossman also managed highly popular draws Odetta and Peter, Paul and Mary.
I couldn't understand the words. I wanted to hear the words. It was a great song, " Maggie's Farm ," and the sound was distorted. I ran over to the guy at the controls and shouted, "Fix the sound so you can hear the words.
He was electric! Electric music is the vernacular of the second half of the twentieth century, to use my father's old term. A longstanding opponent of the arms race and of the Vietnam War, Seeger satirically attacked then-President Lyndon Johnson with his recording, on the album Dangerous Songs!?
Beyond Chandler's lyrics, Seeger said that "Mrs. Jay's little son Alby" had "beans in his ears," which, as the lyrics imply,  ensures that a Where Have All The Flowers Gone - Various - American Ballads (CD) does not hear what is said to them. To those opposed to continuing the Vietnam Warthe phrase implied that "Alby Jay", a loose pronunciation of Johnson's nickname "LBJ," did not listen to anti-war protests as he too had "beans in his ears".
DuringSeeger and Malvina Reynolds took part in environmental activism. The album God Bless the Grass was released on January of that year and became the first album in history wholly dedicated to songs about environmental issues.
Their politics were informed by the same ideologies of nationalism, populism, and criticism of big business. Seeger attracted wider attention starting in with his song " Waist Deep in the Big Muddy ", about a captain — referred to in the lyrics as "the big fool" — who drowned while leading a platoon on maneuvers in Louisiana during World War II. With its lyrics about a platoon being led into danger by an ignorant captain, the song's anti-war message was obvious — the line "the big fool said to push on" is repeated several times.
Although the performance was cut from the September show,  after wide publicity,  it was broadcast when Seeger appeared again on the Smothers' Brothers show in the following January. Seeger's voice carried over the crowd, interspersing phrases like, "Are you listening, Nixon?

InSeeger performed at a benefit concert for Poland's Solidarity resistance movement. His biographer David Dunaway considers this the first public manifestation of Seeger's decades-long personal dislike of communism in its Soviet form. I think so. How could Hitler have been stopped?
Litvinovthe Soviet delegate to the League of Nations in '36, proposed a worldwide quarantine but got no takers. White people in the U. Europeans could apologize for worldwide conquests, Mongolians for Genghis Khan. And supporters of Roosevelt could apologize for his support of Somozaof Southern White Democratsof Franco Spainfor putting Japanese Americans in concentration camps. Who should my granddaughter Moraya apologize to?
Let's look ahead. In a interview, however, he insisted that "I still call myself a communist, because communism is no more what Russia made of it than Christianity is what the churches make of it.
He characterized Seeger as "someone with a longtime habit of following the party line" who had only "eventually" parted ways with the CPUSA. In support of this view, he quoted lines from the Almanac Singers ' May Songs for John Doecontrasting them darkly with lines supporting the war from Dear Mr.
Presidentissued inafter the United States and the Soviet Union had entered the war. Inin response to criticism from historian Ron Radosha former Trotskyite who now writes for the conservative National Review — Seeger wrote a song condemning Stalin, "Big Joe Blues": .
