Johnhenry'shammer Pete Seeger and Bascom Lamar Lunsford (12) Pete Seeger and Bascom Lamar Lunsford 12 May 07

I was wondering if anybody had any more details on the interesting relationship of these two musicians. Every book of music that Pete has put out seems to have something praising Bascom Lamar Lunsford's repetoir or banjo skills but I've heard stories of Bascom calling Pete an "un-American pinko" and banning artists who were friends with Pete Seeger from performing at the Asheville Folk Festival. So is it true that Bascom hated Pete so much? And did Pete just not care or did he, privately, have just as strong of feelings about him? Thanks.
