MUSIC FOR CHANGE: PETE SEEGER @ 100
The FreshGrass Composition Commission
with special guests Aoife O’Donovan, Sam Amidon, Brian Carpenter and Lee Knight

Program to be announced from the stage.

From the FreshGrass website: “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. For our 2019 FreshGrass Composition Commission, the iconic string ensemble Kronos Quartet will create a multi-artist exploration of Seeger’s musical legacy. The group will collaborate with composers like Jacob Garchik and a host of guest vocalists and fellow musicians, including FreshGrass Artist in Residence Aoife O’Donovan, Sam Amidon, and Lee Knight, to re-imagine the songs that Seeger popularized and celebrate his place in the landscape of American music. This special FreshGrass commission will launch at Kronos’ fifth annual Kronos Festival in San Francisco in May and then come to MASS MoCA.”

Kronos Quartet’s Music for Change: Pete Seeger @ 100 was commissioned by the FreshGrass Foundation for the 2019 FreshGrass Festival at MASS MoCA.
