Beautiful Blue Lobster

For the next few days while in Mexico I thought I’d repost several of the short videos that I made for our community this past year. First up is the Beautiful Blue Lobster, featuring Joey, and filmed at Captain Joe and Sons, with a trio of Pete Seeger songs.

Community Sing-a-Long in Celebration of the Life, Spirit and Music of Pete Seeger

pete seeger sing a long
Pete Seeger, one of America’s best-loved folksingers, an untiring activist, environmentalist, and an inspiration to many, passed away on January 27th, 2014.
Folk Life Studio and members of the Cape Ann folk-singing community invite all to an open community sing-a-long to celebrate the life, spirit and music of Pete Seeger.
Come as you are! Bring a song or a story, a snack or non-alcoholic beverage to share if you wish.
Acoustic musical instruments are welcome, too! This will be a participatory evening, as what could be a more appropriate way to remember and honor Pete?
We’ll start at 7 to be more accessible to families with young children. Song sheets will be available. Spread the word! Bring your friends! Bring your family! There is no charge for admission.
