This week’s program is just a tad different. Recently, the Library of Congress published a memoir of the Seeger Family by Archivist Anita M. Weber. This was this set’s inspiration. We'll hear some of the piano and symphonic music of Charles and Ruth Crawford Seeger, some of Ruth’s arrangements of folk tunes for piano and others performed by some of the Seeger Family. We’ll also hear pieces from Henry Cowell and Charles Ives, contemporaries of Ruth. So stretch your ears and hear an entirely different side to the music of the Seeger Family … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.
