'Pete taught me to always know the first song or two you are going play at a concert. After that, you should have a good feel for what the audience appreciates and you tailor the rest of your set to that. Whether the thread turns out to follow the chronology of Pete's life, trace the wisdom he collected over the years and embedded into his songs or to express the values of community, environment, peace and justice he lived, every concert is chock full of songs everyone can sing: old classics, newer songs written late in his life, songs others wrote that he popularized and songs I have written or revised under Pete's tutelage. You'll also hear some of the stories behind the songs as they were told to me by Pete.' -Spook Handy
 
Spook performed over 50 concerts and festivals alongside Pete, learning much about the stories behind the songs, as well as songwriting and performing. Pete's music and legacy are so important to Spook that he put together this special concert with the goal of bringing it to all 21 New Jersey counties, all 50 U.S. states and as many other countries as possible.
