Pete Seeger to Play at Milford Music Festival


Pete Seeger together with RJ Storm and Old School will play at the Milford Theatre on Saturday June 8th at 7 pm. The concert will benefit the non-profit environmental group Air Soil Water whose mission is dedicated to advancing renewable energy sources through education. Opening band is the popular Spirit Family Reunion.

Pete Seeger is a national treasure – prolific singer songwriter and environmentalist with a career spanning more than 70 years. He played a prominent role in the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972 one of the most successful environmental laws in the country.

The idea for starting Air Soil Water came from Jolie DeFeis who led the Save Cummins Hill fight against Tennessee Gas Pipeline. “We wanted something positive to come from the community effort we put forth during the past year and we know that education is the key to empowerment and change. Our goal is to develop Social, Business and Environmental programs that will increase the understanding of alternate energy sources that move us beyond fossil fuels. There is an incredible pool of experts already lined up and the group welcomes anyone who would like to be involved with the organization.” As a first step Air Soil Water will partner with Delaware Valley School District in developing programs focused on sustainable energy sources. “It is a very important initiative for the school and for the community we serve. We look forward to working with Air Soil Water,” said Bill Greenlaw, President of the DV school board.

Tickets are $30 and will go on sale Earth Day (April 22nd). You can purchase them online at and in person at Phoenix East (322 Broad Street) or Upriver Home (202 Broad Street) in Milford, PA.

The Milford Music Festival is being held on June 7, 8, and 9. The music, played throughout Milford, is sponsored by the local business community and is free to everyone. Currently the schedule for the music festival is being constructed, please stay tuned to MilfordNow! for more information as it breaks.
