Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Collins And Seeger Perform “Turn! Turn! Turn!”



To celebrate the publication of Judy Collins’ new memoir, “Sweet Judy Blue Eyes,” let’s listen to a performance that took place during the height of the folk music revival in 1963. In this rendition of “Turn! Turn! Turn!,” Judy is joined by Pete Seeger, who recently lent his voice to Occupy Wall Street.

No surpises here; just a great representation of the renewed importance of folk music as a voice of the social contract that is being attacked by one of our major political parties. On occasion I try to give voice to younger Judy Collins' and Pete Seegers on St. James Infirmary. Sometimes I need the reminder of blogs such as this to keep me focused. Thanks for this beautiful reminder.
