How Can I Keep From Singing?
This series is an inside history of American folk musicâs most famous and controversial performer in three, one-hour programs.
Part 1: "Origins"
How did a Harvard-educated boy become a radical, hitchhiking, banjo-playing, political activist? Program I explores Seegerâs youth and Americaâs folk revival of the 1930s and â40s.
Part 2: "Folk Songs/Ballads"
This program evokes the exciting folk music revival of the 1950s and â60s and the role Seeger played in it.
Part 3: "Topical/Protest Songs"
Program III looks at the tradition of singing out for social change, and how the music of the Civil Rights, anti-war, and environmental movements galvanized Seegerâs life.
