1955. pete seeger.

Pete Seeger is my hero of heroes.

This is my ukulele reading of his gorgeous blues-tinged banjo ballad from his 1955 album for Folkways, "Love Songs For Friends And Foes". Buy it and immerse yourself in it and let it carry you away.

I recorded it this morning on the front porch of the Lullaby cottage. It was cold and a definite indication that summer was past and the cooler autumn days were moving in. As I was playing the rain started to fall on the tin roof.

I used a Collings concert uke. I love this song and I hope I have done some justice to it. Just as I also hope you enjoy listening to it too. Thanks for stopping by to have a look... :)
