Liz Benjamin sang this touching song at the 2018 Conference and brought tears to many eyes. Written by Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt, it was a favorite of the Clearwater Festival.
Our own Jenny Boyd-Murphy was one of the voices in the recording and credited on the CD. Jenny tells us:
“About a dozen of us spent the day with Pete at the Howland Center in Beacon, New York, to record songs for a CD to accompany a reprint of his book Where Have All the Flowers Gone. David Bernz, who organized the day and session, turned it into a CD project that won a Grammy that year. A few years later, I returned to Beacon to join a larger group of singers and children and we did the song again, this time with Pete and Lorre Wyatt. That recording appears on their album A More Perfect Union.”
