(February 1, 2016): Pete Seeger – We Shall Overcome

From the 1963 live album, We Shall Overcome: Recorded Live at His Historic Carnegie Hall Concert June 8, 1963.  A fitting song for morning filed with yet more terrible news of bombings and 131 deaths in Nigerian Dalori villages and Damascus.  Also, just catching up with the sad news that Pete Seeger died three days ago.  I am reminded by his shout out in this recording to Alice Polixer — the oldest attendee at this concert — that he was one year older than her when he died.  We shall overcome.
