Pete Seeger

Tribute to Pete Seeger in Surrey

Feb. 7 concert at Northwood United Church to benefit The Orchestra of Recycled Instruments.

He’s been called one of the most important figures in the American folk revival, and was a vocal advocate for civil rights.

Pete Seeger, who died last year at the age of 94, will be honoured in Surrey Saturday with a musical tribute. The Feb. 7 concert, called The Power of Song, will feature the music of Arnt Arntzen, Tom Arntzen, Harold Lange and Will Sparks and will take place at Northwood United Church (8855 156 St.)

Proceeds will benefit The Orchestra of Recycled Instruments, a group of musicians from Paraguay that uses instruments constructed from discarded materials. The program has spawned a music school and youth group that performs internationally.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for youth, available by calling 604-581-8454.
