While the Canadian Folk Music Awards have been presented virtually over the past two years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Canada’s leading folk music event – including awards concerts and nominee showcases – will be presented live and in-person at The Guild in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and livestreamed March 31-April 2, 2022. Click on the headline or link below to continue reading this article:
Wanda Fischer’s “Hudson River Sampler” is a truly wonderful program, with its excellent taste in selections, and Wanda’s pleasant and soft-spoken on-air announcements. The Sampler is also to be commended for playing songs from regional musicians, allowing listeners to hear for the first time artists that we would otherwise never discover.

I believe I heard Wanda on "Only a Game" this morning talking about her love of baseball and why she is glad she did not pursue a career in writing about sports. Am I right?
Dear Friends, As some of you know I had the great pleasure of knowing and working with the late great Pete Seeger since the time I first met him back in 1978 at the first Hudson River Revival. The Germans have a tradition honoring wise old teachers with a written collection of reflections and remembrances they call a FESTSCHRIFT as a Celebration in writing of the scholars life and work! (We know have over 500 pages of great material but are sill looking for a few more contributions. If you have not yet sent me something please do it asap since I want to submitt this by the end of January 2018 for editing with the hope it will get published in 2019 the 100th birthday of dear Pete!) As is the case with most of the books available about Pete they tend to be Scholarly in their basic approach. What I am suggesting is a popular collection of essays, poems, songs, photos, etc...from the folks whose life he profoundly touched in so may wonderful ways. So if you have a story or two, a song to share, some cool memories of what Pete meant to you, or just a fun story please send something into me at [email protected] I will put up the money to have the materials received into either a E BOOK or hard copy and see to its broad distribution. Any profits will be donated to support the Sloop Woody Guthrie owned and operated by the Beacon Sloop Club in the Hudson Valley as it continues to help keep Pete and Toshi Seeger's mission alive. Along this line it is hard to think of Pete by himself without his lifetime partner Toshi. So memories of her and the two of them together would also be most welcome and appropriate. In real sense the "Celebrity" Pete would not have been out there without her support and partnership! Hope to hear from you all soon Fair Winds Robert V Peters at [email protected]
