presenting:

"A PETE SEEGER SING OUT"


The “Pete Seeger Sing Out” will star Gale McNeeley, Lara Ruth and Betty Faas in one performance only at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, July 19th.
“We want folks to come and help us sing the songs of Pete Seeger,” says group leader, Gale McNeeley, evoking Seeger’s tradition of encouraging audience participation. We even have a dozen ukuleles for folks to play. If you loved Pete and his music, come and celebrate them both.”
A prolific songwriter and historian, Seeger and Woody Guthie travelled the nation in the 1940s. During the 1950s he played with the Weavers, and the group spearheaded an American folk revival that transformed popular music.
Seeger’s popularity reached another peak in the 1960s onward, when he was at the forefront of causes for social change until his death in January at 94. His best-known songs include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" "If I Had A Hammer,” and "Turn! Turn! Turn!"
He also helped popularize dozens of songs like “Irene, Goodnight,” “We Shall Overcome,” “Guantanamera” and “This Land is Your Land.”
Gale McNeeley and Betty Faas are becoming an Ojai institution as they have appeared at the Ojai Art Center for many years in shows such as “Archy & Mehitabel,” “Over the Rainbow,” “A Jacques Brel Cabaret,” and last year, “Songs and Satire,” featuring the lyrics of satirist Tom Lehrer.
The show is a part of a Central Coast Tour that also includes appearances in Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo.
The Sing Out will be in the Ojai Art Center’s gallery at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 19 with a suggested donation of $10. Reservations are not necessary, just come as you are.
