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 “Remembering Pete Seeger” World Tour, keeping alive Pete’s tradition by sharing a few songs by 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 sixth studio album, “Pete, Woody & Me, Volume II” reached the No. 3 position on the International Folk Radio Charts in May, 2019. In 2016 his original song, “Vote!” reached the No. 2 spot.
Spook was named Best Folk Artist by Upstage 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 “Doomsday Code.”
All are welcome!!
