Kari Tauring: Digging Deep Nordic Roots
By David deYoung for Sing Out! Folk Magazine
Kari’s reflections at the passing of Pete Seeger on January 28, 2014:
“I thought about how his songs influenced me as a very young girl. I learned “Where have all the flowers gone?” and “If I had a hammer” from my older cousin and her friend. We sang them by the camp fires and they are part of my American folk way.
Sing Out! magazine was one of his most enduring projects. It is the oldest folk magazine in America and this article was in the last issue before he passed. Enjoy it. I hope he did!
