Who is this skinny, 78-year-old man with the five-string banjo, whose performances over five decades have touched millions of people? Entertainer? Composer? Communist? Bob Dylan once called him a "saint." Joan Baez has said, "We all owe our careers to him." But Pete Seeger's considerable musical achievements have been overshadowed by political controversy. He was investigated for sedition by the House Committee on Un-American activities, harassed by the FBI and CIA, blacklisted, picketed, and even stoned by conservative groups. How Can I Keep from Singing is an inside history of Pete Seeger, whose life has remained a closely guarded secret until now. In this ASCAP award-winning book, David Dunaway parts the curtain through interviews with Pete, his family, friends, and fellow musicians to present a rich, compelling portrait of one of the most remarkable performers, composers, and activists of this century.
