    Thanks for that! Being in the 60 something bracket I can't imagine to have not been touched by Pete Seeger. What I found interesting is even the poorest of audio/video recording could not disguise the beautiful tone of that mandolin.

    Well, I'm grateful for this thread, not only for exposing me to Pete as a mandolin player, but for identifying this tune which, for all these years, I'd only known as "instrumental" on one of my favorite tapes of Dawg & Jerry. It was the only time they played this one.

    Great video Paul. I wish Jerry had played acoustically though. I didn't dig his guitar tone at all.
