ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A live album recording of the Think Globally, Sing Locally concert, featuring American folk music legend Pete Seeger, released on December 10, 2020 on the ten year anniversary of the show. In the spirited and soulful concert, Pete Seeger sings alongside the Take Me to the River Children’s Community Chorus performing folk classics like the German tale “There’s a Hole in the Bucket” and the American “She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain.” Other songs include civil rights era classics like “Aint Gonna Let Nobody”, “We Shall Overcome” and Seeger’s anti-gun violence composition, “Take it from Dr. King”.

Ten years ago, at the South Presbyterian Church in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., Pete Seeger performed this gem of a concert presenting the best of American folk music and values. Listen as Pete gets us all to sing together in a priceless tapestry where school children, song leaders Jenny Murphy and Matt Turk, and the audience participate, weaving a special sound.

Seeger also gets personal on this release and talks about the origins of songs on the album, like he does on the “Over the Rainbow” track. We are reminded on this album why Seeger remains a beacon of song, story and community.

Iconic American Folk Singer and Social Activist, Pete Seeger (born 1919 - passed 2017) was a fixture on nationwide radio in the 1940s, had a string of hit records in the early 1950s as a member of The Weavers, was blacklisted during the McCarthy era only to reemerge in the 1960s as a prominent singer of protest music in support of civil rights, international disarmament and environmental causes. Pete returned to international celebrity through Bruce Springsteen’s The Seeger Sessions, Pete at 90 Concert at Madison Square Garden and singing with Springsteen at President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

This December 10, 2009 Think Globally, Sing Locally concert was produced by 12 Miles North and the partnership of Liz Liebeskind, Nicola Armacost and Barbara Prisament. For this concert 12 Miles North and Pete enlisted friends and local musicians Jenny Murphy and Matt Turk to bring a children’s community chorus together in support of Pete Seeger. Matt brought children from the Coachmen Family Shelter and Jenny brought children from Hastings-on-Hudson, NY and together formed the Take Me to the River Children’s Community Chorus.

12 Miles Norths’ Liz Liebeskind devoted her life to developing the arts in Tribeca, Woodstock, Hastings-on-Hudson and Brooklyn, New York. Think Globally Sing Locally is dedicated to the memories of Liz Liebeskind and Pete Seeger.
