Half a century ago came a generation who shook the world. The 1960s counter culture produced music with a message and those songs have stood the test of time, as relevant today as they ever were.
The New Seegers revive the spirit of this classic era of protest songs and message music. Handpicking the very best songs from the roots of the Beat Generation through the blossoming of the Folk revival to the full blown Hippie mayhem of Woodstock.
Combining both acoustic and electric instruments with glorious vocal harmonies the New Seegers capture the spirit of some of the most memorable and outspoken music of the 20th century.
Expect to hear songs from Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Country Joe & the Fish, The Byrds, The Hollies, The Beatles and The Kinks.
The Defiance Sessions is usually about celebrating what’s good in contemporary political songwriting but this special night is a one-off as we assume a summer festival vibe and take you back 50 years to a decade when love and revolution was in the air.
