LETTER: Pete Seeger played in Rossland

The legendary American folksinger who died last month at 94 performed at the Miners Hall in 1957 or 1958.
The late American folksinger Pete Seeger did perform in West Kootenay at least once

Re: “Pete Seeger’s Kootenay ties”

He visited Rossland and gave a concert in the Mine Mill Hall (Miners’ Hall) in the late 1950s (’57 or ’58?). I lived right across the street so it was quite something to go over to see and hear Pete Seeger! At the end of the program he asked for requests. What a thrill.
