Mike Seeger (Born 1933)

A folk musician and folklorist, he was born into the world of music in New York City. (His parents worked with the famous musicologists John and Alan Lomax, and his half-brother is famed folksinger Pete Seeger.) At the age of 25, he became a founding member of the original New Lost City Ramblers, a trio that recorded traditional, old time string band music. He is a singer with a distinctive, personal style and a multi-instrumentalist who plays autoharp, banjo, fiddle, dulcimer, mouth harp, mandolin, guitar, and dobro with equal authority. His well-documented influence on the American folk music scene has been profound.
