Which Side Are You On? Concert celebrates Pete Seeger's life and activism

Issue No. 2403

Jimmy Ross and Finlay Allison are joined by fiddler Gillian Frame and singer songwriter Penny Stone in a new expanded version of their tribute to the left wing folk legend Pete Seeger.

Pete died this year aged 94. The concert will feature his songs and others he popularised, and archive photos including of Pete playing in Glasgow.

They will tell the story of Pete’s music and his life of activism and persecution in the McCarthy era, and the movements for civil rights and against the Vietnam War.
