Eric Silver and Victor Wooten: Living In the Country

When Victor Wooten shared this awesome video of himself playing a duet of Pete Seeger’s “Living in the Country” with guitarist Eric Silver, it really drew me in. The song has special significance to to Silver, who recorded it after Seeger’s recent passing.

“‘Living In The Country’ was one of the first songs I remember learning on the guitar,” the guitarist shared. “It’s by Pete Seeger who was a big inspiration for me to learn to play guitar and banjo. Victor came by one day and we worked up this arrangement. Thanks for your life and music Pete.”
