And Pete’s banjo gently weeps

“I have sung in hobo jungles, and I have sung for the Rockefellers, and I am proud that I have never refused to sing for anybody…I love my country very deeply.”—Pete Seeger.

In 1986, I saw Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie in concert at the Front Row Theater—the Highland Heights wonderful theater-in-the-round (unfortunately, the Front Row met its demise in 1995, replaced by a Home Depot).    Pete’s banjo, however, lives on at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

Pete Seeger, legendary folk singer, dies at 94 – The Washington Post.

About Barbara Hacha

What a long, strange trip it has been (and the journey continues). My historical novel, Line by Line, published in March of 2011, and my nonfiction book about hobos, called Mulligan Stew, published in November 2013. I just completed a novella, called Sidetracks, which was inspired by readers asking me to write more about the characters they met in Line by Line. By day I’m a freelance copyeditor of college textbooks, computer books, and works of fiction. Nights and weekends, and between freelance gigs, I’m working on railroader stories and another novel. I’m also a musician, with a BA in piano performance, and a photographer, who occasionally exhibits in the Cleveland area. I also taught photography to people with disabilities—and they taught me to take a different look at the world.

  1. I loved the theater-in-the round; Front Row and the old Music Carnival. I remember the musical Carnival, the first one I took my wife to when we started dating.
