Daniel Blegen® Longmont, CO
A Musical Portrait
With Dan Blegen
Until his death in 2014 at age 94, Pete Seeger was one of the 20th century’s most influential voices. With traditional ballads and his own compositions, Seeger united and empowered audiences. And he got them singing!
Colorado author and performer Dan Blegen presents Seeger’s life and music in a unique, one-man theatrical presentation,
Pete Seeger: A Musical Portrait. The program covers the arc of Seeger’s life and six-decade career. Blegen sings twenty-five of the tunes that Seeger is best known for, including standards like "Turn, Turn, Turn,” “If I Had a Hammer,” and
“We Shall Overcome.”
Dan Blegen created the docu-concert format in 2012, when he toured the state of Colorado presenting the life and songs of Woody Guthrie in a program called Hard Travelin’.
