So Pete Seeger would sing at the beginning of his early 1960s television show, Rainbow Quest, on WNET, channel 13 in New York City. It was the height of the folk music boom (or as some call it, the folk scare), and Pete would come on picking his strange hybrid of old time clawhammer banjo and Charlie Poole three finger style, with his own many innovations thrown in. He’d welcome little known guests on the show playing strange music for city people, Doc Watson, Mississippi John Hurt, The Greenbriar Boys, Johnny Cash and Roscoe Holcomb.
