Pete and Toshi Seeger

Sag Harbor resident Terry Sullivan will bring back his popular Sing-Along, in memory of Pete and Toshi Seeger, to Canio’s Books, 290 Main Street in Sag Harbor, on Saturday, May 25, beginning at 5 p.m. The free event will celebrate Mr. Seeger, the American singer-songwriter and activist, best known for songs like “If I Had a Hammer,” “Turn! Turn! Turn!” and “Where Have All the Flowers Gone.”

Mrs. Seeger in 2013 and Mr. Seeger in 2014. In February of 2014, Mr. Sullivan sponsored a memorial sing-along in the couple’s honor at the Christ Episcopal Church and discussed their contributions to the Earth, and to Sag Harbor. In 1993, Mr. Seeger came to the Old Whalers’ Church to perform a benefit concert for the Eastville Historical Society at Mr. Sullivan’s request; the two met at a songwriting workshop in Rhinebeck in 1991 and Mr. Sullivan would perform with Mr. Seeger in venues including Carnegie Hall.

The sing-along is free and open to the public. Visit canios.com for more information.
