Wasn’t That a Time

In advance of the concert, The Egg will present the program “Wasn’t That a Time” featuring music writer Jesse Jarnow in a number of venues on May 3, 4 and 5. Mr. Jarnow will explore the life of Pete Seeger, focusing on the research done for his 2018 book “Wasn’t That a Time: The Weavers, the Blacklist, and the Battle for the American Soul.” This intriguing volume details the trials of the four magically compatible singers led by Pete Seeger who rose to incredible popularity but whose socialist connections and anti-authoritarian ideologies got them professionally blacklisted at the height of their fame. Live music will be performed by banjoist Richie Stearns – who performed with or for Pete Seeger on numerous occasions, and was invited to score original music for an album that featured Mr. Seeger telling his life story over a music background – and folk fiddler Rosie Newton. The multi-media program will be enhanced by photo projections as well as recorded music by Pete Seeger and the Weavers.
