Spook Handy Returns to the Millburn Library

Come join us at the Millburn Free Public Library on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 2:00pm for Spook Handy Presents Songs of Pete, Woody, and Me.

Spook Handy performed alongside Pete Seeger at festivals and concerts more than 50 times from 2003 – 2013 learning firsthand many of Pete’s songs and the stories behind them. Even more, he learned who Pete Seeger was and what he stood for. Spook is now traveling throughout the U.S. and Canada with his “Songs of Pete, Woody, and Me” World Tour, keeping alive Pete’s tradition by sharing a few songs of Woody Guthrie (Pete’s most notable mentor), plenty of songs by Pete Seeger and a healthy handful of new songs Spook wrote under Pete’s tutelage.

Spook’s 2019 album, “Songs of Pete, Woody & Me, Volume II – Dedicated to the Proposition,” reached No. 3  on the International Folk Radio Charts in May, 2019.  His 2016 album, “Pete Woody & Me, Volume I – Keep the Flame Alive,” held the No. 3 position for two months in 2016 with his original songs reaching as high as No. 2. Recorded with his backup band “The Seed Planters,” the CD is more than just a tribute to Pete.  It is a work that, as John Weingart of WPRB Radio says, “certainly rests on the shoulders of the past but is unmistakably steeped in the present.”

Spook was named Best Folk Artist by Upstage Magazine, Aquarian Magazine, Gannett New Jersey, The Courier News, The Home News and About.com.  His song “Whatcha Gonna Do?” was used in the BBC documentary film “Doomday Code.”  And four of this songs including “Bring Back Abiyoyo” were used in a theatrical adaptation of Pete Seeger’s children’s story “Abiyoyo.”  Spook is well known speaker and workshop facilitator at festivals and conferences around the country.
