Turn, Turn, Turn – A Tribute to Pete Seeger
Volunteering in Tioga County is alive and well, displayed once again in today’s feature about the Wellsboro Community Concert Association. All of those involved (excluding the sound engineer) are volunteering their time and talents. The Association has been doing these concerts since 1947 – bringing performing arts to rural America. Bruce Smith, the newly appointed President of the Board, shared how the vision continues for their 67th year. Tonight’s concert – the first of this season – brings the Vanaver Caravan first to the Wellsboro High School in the morning for a workshop with the students. The concert tonight will begin at 7:30pm. We also spoke to the co-creator of this event, Bill Vanaver, who told us that the concert was created in honor of Pete Seeger. Pete wrote many popular songs, such as “Turn, Turn, Turn” and “Where Have All The Flowers Gone.” His music inspired the likes of the Peter Paul & Mary and Bob Dylan. Bill encouraged us to come out for a time of dance and song in recognition of this wonderful artist.
