Local actor, musician and independent producer, Mark Hellman is delighted to bring his rollicking one-man singalong musical, PETE SEEGER’S THE INCOMPLEAT FOLKSINGER.
Pete Seeger (1919-2014) was a key figure in the mid-20th century global folk music revival. He sang in defence of the poor, the oppressed, and the exploited, and always to enliven and encourage, to delight, and to tell tales. This unique full-length solo performance (adapted from Seeger’s 1972 autobiography of the same name) imagines a concert ‘somewhere on the road, 1970, weaving together verbatim theatre, live music and audience participation into a journey spanning 35 years (1935-70) and featuring all or part of 29 songs.
Seeger reflects on his involvement in the union movement, WWII, his public stand against McCarthyism(HUAC), his actions in support of the Civil Rights Movement, global travels (with many stops across Canada) and visits to conflict zones overseas, while honouring his greatest inspirations: Woody Guthrie, Lee Hays, Leadbelly, Martin Luther King, and his great love, Toshi Ohta.
Invited to sing along at every turn, the audience is completely engaged and embedded in the story, and by the finale of “If I Had a Hammer” audience and performer merge into a single voice, embodying the principle that Seeger lived through his life and art: “Participation. That’s what’s gonna save the human race.”
