PETE SEEGER 1919 -2014


“These are times that try men’s souls; the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” Thomas Paine

Thank you, Pete, for a lifetime of music, hope, courage and  patriotism for every season.

About Marty Luster

I'm Marty Luster, a retired attorney and politician. In 2010 my wife, mother-in-law, dog and I relocated from Central NY to Gloucester. I hope my photographs and poetry(?) reflect my love for this place and her people. My picture-poem posts can be seen at and selected black and white images can be found at

    Amen! We are so lucky that Pete rounded Cape Ann in a Schooner one day, sailed in, and gave a rip roaring concert at GHS that night! Life well lived indeed!

  2. Thanks, and good choice of song!

  3. Thanks ~ listened it him then ~ listened to and sent him forward now ~

  4. If the politicians and corporate moguls understood half of what Pete knew about the difference between right and wrong, this planet would be in much better shape.

  5. God bless you, Pet Seeger, and your song of life.
