Pete Seeger: The Storm King audio collection presents Pete Seeger’s spoken words as he captivatingly recounts his most engaging stories, narratives, and poems-set to new music created by nearly 50 musicians from traditions as diverse as African Music, Blues, Bluegrass, Classical Guitar, Folk, Jazz, and Native American Music, Pete’s wisdom and stories out to new audiences and into a new technological age.
Each piece is unique in sound and emotion and also in how it came together. Jeff Haynes, world-renowned percussionist and producer, has worked closely with Pete to create something spectacular — weaving Pete’s words to the music of artists from around the world who would not otherwise have shared a stage with Pete but who have been deeply influenced by him.
The result is astounding.
“It brings out things in my words that I never knew before.” — Pete Seeger
“Pete’s still finding the hope and planting the seeds . . . and keeping us invigorated in our own best intentions.” — Dar Williams
- "Pete Seeger and percussionist/producer Haynes present one of the most original and inspired audiobooks of the last decade with this collection of stories, songs, music, and musings, straight from the mouth and mind of the legendary folk musician himself. Seeger's words are blended with a variety of world music in what amounts to an unforgettable and groundbreaking listen. As a narrator, Seeger's tone is raw, edgy, and, at times, visceral, as he recounts his life and times. Seeger captures listener attention from the very beginning and never lets go. A must-listen for fans."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
