Gems from the life of one of the most influential figures in American music!

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
