Targeted by the infamous House Un-American Activities Committee, blacklisted, and under indictment for contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about his political beliefs, Pete Seeger persevered, traveling throughout North America and performing “community concerts” in schools and local venues. This 1960 concert at Bowdoin College in Maine captures the mood of the time and the enormity of Seeger’s talent as performer, song leader, and social activist. The 2-CD set presents the entire concert, recorded with extraordinary fidelity by the campus radio station. 111 minutes, 24-page booklet, extensive notes.
