WBAI Benefit Feat. Pete Seeger and Friends

WBAI 99.5fm, one of New York’s oldest listener sponsored, community radio stations is having a benefit concert at The Cutting room on Thursday, November 14, 2013, with legendary folk singer, and songwriter Pete Seeger as the headliner.



Seeger will be accompanied by one of the biggest names in folk music; composer, conductor and multi-instrumentalist David Amram along with Tiokasin Ghosthorse (Lakota), Ataahua Papa (Maori), Soni Moreno (Apache-Mayan) and Charley Buckland of the band Matou, The Last Internationale, Kristen Graves, Jeremy Kolmin, Dani Tersini, Spook Handy, and Earth Mum.

Tagged as the “master musician” or the “spiritual agitator,” WBAI First Voices Indigenous Radio’s very own Tiokasin Ghosthorse, will be performing along with the band The Last Internationale, described as “impassioned Folk-rockers” by Rolling Stone magazine.

After experiencing severe blows from the financial crisis and Super Storm Sandy, the radio station was forced to move from their Wall Street location. However, thanks to their dedicated listeners, and sponsors, WBAI is regrouping and is in the process of building recording studios. For the time being, the offices are located three blocks up from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the studios are in Manhattan at the City College of New York in Harlem. This benefit concert will help WBAI work under one roof, again.
