Pat and Pete Seeger were part of a group of songwriters that worked with editors, Annie Peterson & Peter Blood, to choose the songs for “Rise Up Singing”, the now-classic, community-singing songbook. Shortly after it was published, Annie & Peter heard Pat's song "Swimming to the Other Side” and said, “Well, now we’re going to have to do a second book!”
“Rise Again” is that book and we are thrilled to have 5 of our songs included, plus a chapter named after our song about Pete Seeger, "Sing People Sing”!
"Rise Again" contains chords, lyrics, and sources for 1200 more songs—everything from Old Time to the Beatles to Millennial Songs. The book is released in two versions: the 7 1/2" x 10" format (Small) and the 9" x 12” format (Large). Both are spiral bound.
Note: Rise Up Singing does NOT include notation of the songs' melodies (with the exception of the two sections on rounds), meaning that users must either know the tune, find a recording (liner notes under each song give resources for this), or learn songs from each other in song circles or singalong.
