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.”

The album is available by download from iTunes or CDBaby (where it can be streamed for free), and in CD form at gigs. Those looking for “more cowbell” will find it on the third track, Kitchen Famous.
