Tickets and Reservations

Come listen to author, musician, and two-time Grammy-winning producer David Bernz present stories and music from his new book, Chopping Wood: Thoughts & Stories Of A Legendary American Folksinger based on his years of conversations with his close friend and collaborator, Pete Seeger. The book takes readers on a uniquely personal journey through the legendary folksinger and songwriter’s remarkable life and career. Minimally edited to preserve Seeger’s trademark cadence, the book is punctuated by historical images and commentary by David Bernz, as well as remembrances from other musicians and friends and a foreword by Arlo Guthrie. Readers will come to know Pete more deeply as they hear this gentle, principled man’s voice, and bear witness to his humility and willingness to respect those whose opinions differed greatly from his own—vital qualities in these troubled and divisive times.

“There is no one more important as a source of inspiration and process in the world of folk music than Pete.” – Peter Yarrow (from Peter, Paul & Mary)
