CHESTER Pete Seeger 100th Birthday Songfest: We’ll honor Pete Seeger, singing many of his well-loved songs such as If I Had a Hammer, Turn, Turn, Turn, Where Have All the Flowers Gone. Led by composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, we'll raise our voices for the causes Pete championed and remember the great contributions to our American heritage Pete made in his 94 years of life. Jim played for years with the Paul Winter Consort and was co-composer of their celebrated Missa Gaia/Earth Mass.
