A 2-Act rollicking, tour de force tribute to the late, great folksinger, social activist, environmentalist, and global citizen, Pete Seeger, adapted from Seeger's 1972 'autobiography', imagines a concert 'somewhere on the road, 1970' wherein the book comes to life through storytelling and all or part of 29 songs, inviting the audience to sing along at every turn.

...an absolute delight from start to finish. - TJ Dawe
….it’s so real. It became this huge singalong…I’ve never been to a piece of theatre like that. - CBC Radio
