Paul Kotheimer Sings Seeger and Kotheimer This Week


Wednesday evening, the Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival will present a screening of the PBS American Masters film Pete Seeger: The Power of Song. The evening will include a live performance of some of Seeger’s songs by local songwriter Paul Kotheimer, who, like Seeger, mixes political activism with his music-making. He’ll do a solo show in Champaign on Saturday, and he’ll play for us live on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.”
