Spirit of Seeger

Posted on February 26, 2014 by Sonoma Valley Sun

Sam Page, Allegra Broughton and Dave Aguilar share the stage during a ‘Wake for Pete Seeger” jam Sunday at Murphy’s Irish Pub. “We’re singing Pete out in style, sailing where he may,” said musician Steve Kahn, who organized the event as a fundraiser for Gustavo Mejia and his five-year-old daughter, Jazzlin.

The two were seriously injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. Jazzlin suffered lower body paralysis. Surgery was performed to fuse her spinal column and restore feeling; she has only recently returned to her Sonoma home.

Gustavo broke both his legs and has undergone multiple surgeries. Funds from the concert and any future donations will make a major difference in the ongoing recovery for the Mejia family. Contribute via PayPal at There is also a trust fund set up through the Exchange Bank in Sonoma.
