Back porch swamp blues music stomps you into the Mekong
River as Pete tells the controversial story of how the airing of his song “Waist
Deep in the Big Muddy”, protesting the war in Vietnam, contributed to the
Smother’s Brothers’ show being cancelled.
This single is
part of the ongoing project called Pete Seeger: The Storm King—an
audio collection presenting Seeger’s spoken words as he recounts his most
engaging stories, narratives, and poems—set to new music. Pete Seeger: The Storm King is produced by world renowned
percussionist and producer Jeff Haynes and incorporates music from over fifty
musicians from traditions as diverse as African music, blues, bluegrass,
classical guitar, folk, jazz, Native American music, and world beat. Download and start listening now!
