Recording “Sailing Up My Dirty Stream — Pete Seeger, Part 3,” Dr. Robert Wiznura, March 5, 2023

Topic: Sailing Up My Dirty Stream — Pete Seeger, Part 3
Imagining and slowly building a world that is green, with the music of Pete Seeger.
The image of Pete Seeger—for those who still have an image of Pete—is an old, skinny guy with a banjo who, somehow, gets everybody singing: all ages and persuasions. His songs were/are songs of awareness and hope. Just think of some lines from his songs and you’ll get a sense of where we are going: “when will we ever learn?” “and because I love you, I’ll give it one more try,” “and when we sing another little victory song / Precious friend you will be there.” In a bruised, battered, beaten down community or world, Pete reminds us to look at each other and sing out our problems and sing our way towards a new and better world.
This is the third in a four-part series featuring the music of Pete Seeger and presented by Robert Wiznura.
Missed the first one? No worries, come along and join right in.
Speaker, Service Leader, & Musician: Dr. Robert Wiznura
Service Techs: Hannah, Jacqueline Willette & Bill Lee
