PETE SEEGER – ‘THE POWER OF SONG’ DOCUMENTARY FILM 

(Friday, March 18; 6:30 refreshments, 7:30 film @ Emmanuel Parish Hall)

A vibrant musical film in which director Jim Brown documents the life of one of the greatest American singer/songwriters of the last century.  Pete Seeger was the architect of the folk revival, writing some of its best known songs including “Where Have all the Flowers Gone”, “Turn, Turn, Turn”, and “If I Had A Hammer”.  Largely misunderstood and criticized for his strong beliefs, he was picketed, protested, blacklisted, and in spite of his enormous popularity, banned from commercial TV for more than 17 years.  Rated PG.  Donations accepted.
