Pete Seeger Sings Lead Belly

Pete Seeger Sings Lead Belly

Iconic folk singer Pete Seeger describes the music of Lead Belly as "some of the best songs we'll ever know." On this 11-track recording, Seeger pays tribute to the legendary blues musician and 12-string guitar virtuoso he also called a friend. Performed live with both exuberance and deference, the selections on this recording present a small fraction of Lead Belly's extensive repertoire but include greats such as "Goodnight Irene," "Midnight Special," and "Alabama Bound." Sleeve notes written by Seeger include a biography of Lead Belly and recount the origins of their friendship, and what it was that made Lead Belly the artist he was.
