Pete Seeger Reunion Concert Part Of Toronto Film Festival

Published: 2004-08-26
The 2004 Toronto Film Festival will feature more than films this year. Following a documentary film "Isn't This A Time: A Tribute Concert for Harold Leventhal" will be a performance by the legendary folk singer Pete Seeger and the surviving members of The Weavers.

The 85 year old Seeger has spent most of the past two decades refusing to play before a paying audience. Seeger began the practice after the 1982 documentary film "Wasn't That A Time" was released. The film explored the impact of The Weavers on music and their political role in the US. The Weavers were blacklisted in America during the McCarthy era.

The world premiere of "Isn't This A Time" will be September 17. The film features the 2003 Thanksgiving Day concert in Carnegie Hall.

Reportedly the performance by Seeger will be his last.

He performs for free in his own community all summer long. He has said that this is his last paying gig.
He will play on I'm sure!
