Pete Seeger

The Storm King

Pete Seeger: The Storm King presents Pete Seeger’s spoken words—in his own recorded voice—set to live music and video based on the Grammy-nominated audio project conceived and produced by world-renowned percussionist and producer, Jeff Haynes. Jeff Haynes, Sara Milonovich, Sean Harkness, Timothy Hill, and Richie Stearns present new music created by musicians from traditions as diverse as African Music, Blues, Bluegrass, Classical Guitar, Folk, Jazz, and Native American Music—to accompany and interact with Pete Seeger’s voice—painting an evocative aural backdrop for Pete’s most engaging stories, narratives, and poems reflecting his lifelong dedication to human rights, environmental issues, and his boundless hope for humanity—bringing Pete’s wisdom and stories to new audiences and into a new technological age. Each piece is unique in sound and emotion and also in how it came together. Haynes and Seeger, working closely for over 5 years, have created something spectacular—weaving Pete’s words to the music of artists from around the world, who may not otherwise have shared a stage with Pete but who have been deeply influenced by him. The result is astounding.
