A double CD set featuring two recorded concerts of the legendary American folk singer and prolific songwriter Pete Seeger.

The first concert was recorded when he visited the UK in 1958 which at that time was issued on the Folklore label. The second concert was recorded at Manchester's Free Trade Hall in 1964.

His best-known songs include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" (with Joe Hickerson) and "If I Had a Hammer ".

Typical Seeger material of that time. He talks about his friends Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie and champions new songwriters like Tom Paxton and Malvina Reynolds.

The concerts also give a wonderful insight to how Seeger worked an audience.

The Folklore LPs had limited circulation and the Manchester concert has never been heard before. The booklet comes with an informative essay about Pete Seeger by Joe Stead, some observations by Seeger himself and notes about the songs.
