If I Had a Hammer: Pete Seeger’s Life in Song
Lecturer: Dr. Stephen Richer

The year 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the most influential and beloved troubadours of protest songs: Pete Seeger. To celebrate this folk singer and social activist’s legacy, banjo-playing sociologist Stephen Richer is giving lectures in Canada, the United States and Mexico. Come participate in this musical retrospective on Seeger’s life and times. The lecture is dynamic and interactive, and the audience will be hard-pressed not to sing along.

Pre-registration is required. Open to all adults (some children might enjoy too!) Visit our site for lecturer biography, registration links and other details (and to sign up for notification of other events).
