The Incompleat Folksinger, Jan. 8-18

Pete Seeger was a folk singer, political activist, and a key figure in the mid-20th century American folk music revival. He sang in defense of the poor and exploited; always to encourage, delight and tell tales. The Other Guys Theatre Company present The Incompleat Folksinger, adapted by Ross Desprez and Mark Hellman from the book of the same name, which shares, in Seeger’s own words and music, his inspirations, conflicts, favorite songs, stories and instruments, and the kind of learning that comes from listening carefully. At the Metro Theatre. ticketrocket.org.
