He never came to Shakori Hills, but we think Pete Seeger would have loved it here! He would have wandered the wooded paths, his banjo slung over his back, in search of camp jams and folks to have conversations with, swapped tales and songs by the fire. He would have played games with the children, taught them “This Land is Your Land” or “This Old Man.” He might have two-stepped in the Dance Tent, or joined the Rowdy Square Dance. He surely would have sat down at the sustainability fair or one of the advocacy booths and had a heated debate about fracking in NC. And he would have played an inspiring set on one of our stages, filling the hills with the songs lifted not only by his voice, but by all of our voices. “Participation,” Pete said, “that’s what’s gonna save the human race!”

Participation in sit-ins and protests against injustice is important, but so is the participation in teaching a child a song, or a teenager to build something with her own hands. Participation in the good things in life is just as important as participation in what we believe in and what we think is right for our fellow human beings – or aren’t they the same thing?
One thing we love most here at the festival is that everyone who enters the gate is encouraged not only to absorb the festival, to get something good out of it, but also, to participate in it. Folks have just as much to offer the festival as the festival has to offer them. Once it begins, it becomes a living thing, bouncing from woman to man to child, sharing their smiles, their movements, their good energy, and becoming a whole.
Seeger thought that a song could change the world. He thought that music could take individuals and turn them into a whole, a human race working together to improve our existence. Perhaps a festival could do the same…come, this spring, and participate with us!
