This past Saturday night the Bearsville Theater was packed for the Pete and Peggy Seeger concert. Pete led many sing-a-longs and told lots of stories. In one he told of composing “Where Have all the Flowers Gone” on his way to a concert at Oberlin College—one that Joe Hickerson had a hand in organizing. Some years later Joe, while at Camp Woodland, added several more verses and this version was recorded in 1961. In 2010 the New Statesmen listed the tune as one of the “Top 20 Political Songs” of all time.
