The show at the Carnegie Carnegie by the long-running Ferla-Marcinizyn Guitar Duo, with guest vocalist Daphne Alderson, will conclude with three numbers honoring the late folk-music legend.
Jim Ferla and John Marcinizyn have performance credits across the U.S., and frequently collaborate with Alderson, a contralto who ranges from opera to pop and cabaret.
The program opens with The Beatles’ “Nowhere Man” and includes everything from French Renaissance and Portugese art songs to contemporary works. Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” plus “We Shall Overcome” and “Turn, Turn, Turn,” wrap the program.
Seeger, an inveterate political activist and a key influence on America's mid-century folk revival, died in January at age 94.
The show is part of the “Listen Locally” series at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall, in Carnegie. Tickets are $15 and are available here. A reception with the musicians follows the show.
The Carnegie Carnegie is at 300 Beechwood Ave.
