Bucks County Community College will pay tribute to folk legend and political activist Pete Seeger during a concert next week led by a faculty member.
Professor David Brahinsky will perform acoustic guitar and vocals during a lunchtime concert Thursday. The program, called Songs to Change the World By: The Legacy of Pete Seeger, is open to the public.
Music will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the Music and Multimedia Center on the college's Newtown Campus, 275 Swamp Rd, Newtown.
Pete Seeger was 94 when he passed away in January. He died the day after he was up for a GRAMMY for Best Spoken Word Album for "The Storm King," an audio book of stories, narratives and poems put to music.
"We Shall Overcome," a song that Seeger adapted and popularized, became the anthem of the nation's civil rights movement in 1960.
