This fresh rendition of Pete's classic song is bookended with just percussion and vocals transitioning to Pete's spoken word, classical guitar, and violin - as Pete tells the story, beginning with the Cossack soldiers and ending with the German actress, Marlene Dietrich, of how he came to write his lyrics and how the song was embraced around the world.
This single is part of the ongoing project called Pete Seeger: The Storm King - an audio collection presenting Seeger's spoken words as he captivatingly recounts his most engaging stories, narratives, and poems - set to new music, produced by world-renowned percussionist/producer Jeff Haynes, from over 50 musicians from traditions as diverse as African Music, Blues, Bluegrass, Classical Guitar, Folk, Jazz, Native American Music, and World Beat.
