PETE SEEGER'S THE INCOMPLEAT FOLKSINGER with Mark Hellman
FUNDRAISER FOR SOOKE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY! Mark Hellman is delighted to bring his rollicking tribute to legendary folksinger, social activist, and environmentalist, Pete Seeger, to Sooke on Saturday, October 5, as he kicks off a fall tour that will end up in New York City in November.
This musical memoir is told entirely in Seegers own words (from his 1972 autobiography) and features 29 favourite songs from his early years (1935-70), inviting the audience to sing along at every turn. Suitable
for audiences 8 98. Originally produced by the Other Guys Theatre Co. in 2015. This special performance is a fundraiser for the Society, which will allow us to support a variety of local charitable causes.
Mark Hellman (CFM, CAEA) has been a professional actor, musician, director, teacher and independent producer since 1981. He has worked with Kaleidoscope Theatre (Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane), Theatre SKAM (7eventy 7even, Smalltown, a Pickup Musical), the Belfry (The Life Inside, Ethan Claymore), as well as collaborating with the Other Guys on several projects (Moodyville Tales, Good Timber, Flotsam & Jetsam) combining live music, storytelling, theatre, and audience participation. He recently had the pleasure of singing some of Petes songs with Denis Donnellys Wavelengths Community Choir at the Mary
Winspear Centre in Sidney.
Hellman shines.Seeger fans and folk music die-hards will love the songs.I cant remember a play that had me singing along so much.
