Pete Seeger: “The World that Music Lives In”
Free talk with Todd Harvey (American Folklife Center)

Pete Seeger, who would have turned 100 years old this May, lived through the tumultuous 20th century as a force for kindness, humility, and good. His pursuits reflected the complexity of the times through the lens of music making and music creating. This talk will illustrate Seeger’s career and efforts for peace and social justice by using primary source materials held at the American Folklife Center, Library of Congress, where speaker Todd Harvey is a curator. Harvey works primarily with the Center’s archival collections relating to the 20th-century folk music revival, including the collections of the Seeger family, the Lomax family, Jean Ritchie, Woody Guthrie, Izzy Young, and John Cohen.

Kronos Labs are free and open to the public; first come, first served.
