Pete Seeger at the Strawberry Festival

I had the pleasure of meeting Pete Seeger at a Strawberry Festival in New York state a few weeks ago while working as researcher and production assistant on a documentary about the late Cuban poet Jose Marti.

Marti wrote a lot of the lyrics that ended up in the version of a song Pete Seeger recorded called Guantanamera. Filmmaker Margaux Ouimet and I went down and visited Seeger in his hometown of Beacon, New York to talk to him and his grandson, Tao about Jose Marti and Guantanamera.

The interview will be featured in Ouimet’s film, «L’Humanisme des Martiens» which will be released, out of Montreal, in the near future.
