Pete Seeger on the Johnny Cash Show

I probably won’t post again about Pete Seeger, but this video is too good not to share. He plays a 100-year old fretless banjo, sings a song about high britches and high water, a beautiful dirge-like tune from the 1830s about Chief Osceola, and then the two duet on “It Takes A Worried Man to Sing a Worried Song” as the crowd claps along. Truly amazing to see two legends interacting so casually and memorably.

      Hey, that’s wonderful. Thanks for sharing. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to get to Newport Folk, and that experience would just about crown them all.
