Some time in the late 1930s or early 1940s, Pete Seeger & Woody Guthrie were barnstorming the country, playing work camps and union halls and wherever they could. They played a lumber camp somewhere in the north country, for a bunch of Scandinavian American lumberjacks. Woody and Pete played a song. Silence. They played another. Dead silence. They played a third. Not a peep. They wrapped up and went to bed. Next morning, a lumberjack approached them and said, I don’t know why you stopped, I could have listened all night, it was so beautiful.
