Camp Woodland Reunion

 Sue Rosenberg reads from Camp Woodland's newspaper, The Catskill Call and Pete sings Guantanamera.

Pete Seeger explains the origen of the poem Guantanamera, which was written in Haines Falls, NY state, where the great Cuban poet was recuperating from illness.

Atheists and Patriots:
Campers speak of their camp experiences-- from arguments about the existence of God to raising the US flag every morning.

Niela Miller Sings Searching for the Lambs.

 Putting on the Agony, Putting on the Style

 Last Night I had the Strangest Dream followed by Down by the Riverside

Two songs from the Cantata "We Come From the City" by Herb Haufrecht sung by the Hudson Valley Folk Guild.

 Sue Rosenberg sent more information about the musicians:
 So here are the names of the people on the stage: 
Eric Weissberg on the banjo, playing with him was Mickey Vandow. 
Karl Finger played guitar and he's the one singing Guantanemara with Pete and Pat Lamanna. 
Niela Miller was all the way on the right (near me) and Dan Mack-Ward was the other guy with the guitar. He sang When a Feller is out of a job. Bob Lusk from Heritage Folk Music sang Big Bill Snyder with Ira McIntosh- who is the story teller from Andes.

 I will be posting these songs in the next few days.
It takes time to compress the material and then to post it on YouTube.
