On March 18, The Maritzburg Musicians Club will host folk diva, Miriam Erasmus, in a tribute to the late Pete Seeger.

Pete Seeger (1919-2014) was an American folk singer and activist. A contemporary of Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, he kept the folk music tradition alive since the 1940s. During the 1950s he was a member of The Weavers, and was responsible for such classic folk songs as Where Have All The Flowers Gone, If I Had A Hammer, Turn Turn Turn, and the 1960s civil rights anthem We Shall Overcome.

Miriam will be joined on the night by the Hairy Legged Lentil Eaters.

The show takes place on March 18 starting at 20h00 at the Red Door Club, in Quarry Road off Victoria Road in Pietermaritzburg. Entrance fee R40 payable at the door. Car guards on duty. More information from Roger O’Neill on 083 230 6562
