Album features one of Pete Seeger’s last songs
Local singer/songwriter Freddie Martin teamed up with local musicians, including Pete Seeger, to complete his first solo album, Slane, released on the winter solstice. Martin’s album release party takes place 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 8, at Dogwood Bar in Beacon. All are invited and asked to sing along. Admission is free.
The first song on the album, Peace Will Prevail, is co-written by Pete Seeger and is based on an old Irish air. It is one of the last songs that Seeger worked on. Martin noted: “I received Pete’s last notes on the song sheet in the mail on the night he died. The song’s message is an important part of Pete’s legacy, and I am honored to carry it on.”
