Lost, Stolen, or Strayed:
On  Tues, Aug. 8, a one-of-a kind 5 string banjo in a green cloth case was removed from the back of folksinger Pete Seeger's vehicle  either as he stopped briefly in Poughkeepsie, NY or in the small town of Rosendale where he was attending a political rally. This banjo was built by Seeger as a prototype which was later produced and sold by the Vega company. It has the following words written around the head of the instrument: "This Machine Surrounds Hatred and Forces it to Surrender". Any information leading to the return of this banjo would be deeply appreciated, to say the least! A cash reward is also being offered. Please check your local pawnshops, check e-bay, and in general keep your ears to the ground for any clues. Owner and fans heartsick! Thanks in advance for your help. : ( Sarah [Underhill] (from
