Stephen Moss: Pete Seeger: five great performances

Stephen Moss – Pete Seeger: five great performances:

“The manner in which he calls on the audience to participate is telling, too. He wasn't the star; the audience was. Music was a vehicle for mass expression. That helps to explain his opposition to Dylan's new course. Confronted with a rock band, the audience were reduced to mere spectators, fans; Seeger wanted participants, activists, He wanted to change the world, not just entertain it.”

Sorry for the off-topic post. But there’s lessons in here for software as well… (I’m enjoying the 1963 concert recording a lot, by the way.)
