Mark Hellman is Pete Seeger in the Other Guise Theatre Company’s adaptation of Pete Seeger’s, The Incompleat Folksinger - Back out on the road in 2021!

Pete Seeger was a folk singer, political activist, and a key figure in the mid-20th century American folk music revival. He sang in defense of the poor, the oppressed, and the exploited; and always to enliven and encourage, to delight, and to tell tales. The Incompleat Folksinger, adapted by Ross Desprez and Mark Hellman from the book of the same name, shares, in Seeger’s own words and music, his inspirations, his conflicts with the bosses and the government, his favorite songs, stories, and instruments and the kind of learning that comes from listening carefully. “Any fool can get complicated,” he wrote. “We are born in simplicity but die of complications”.
