Please join us on May 3 to honor Pete Seeger's life and music on the 100th anniversary of his birth!
Born May 3, 1919, Pete Seeger was a legendary folksinger, musician and activist who called Beacon his home. He was a perennial supporter of the Towne Crier, too, having been one of our first performers when we started out in Beekman, and also played one of his last shows here at our Beacon location in November 2013, just a couple of months before he passed. He was a frequent visitor who also gave us our first food review in Beacon!
Days after his passing on Jan. 27, 2014, we held a special Open Door tribute for Pete and drew the largest attendance in our history! So many wanted to share songs and stories of Pete; it was an overwhelming and emotional response to a beloved icon. He drew together diverse communities in the arts, environmental and activist circles, as well as the broader Beacon community.
Our celebration will feature many local, regional and national performers!
The event is free, but donations are suggested for Clearwater, the organization Pete founded and loved so well.
