March 22:             A Tribute to Pete Leary
  Pete Leary was a singer, songwriter, yodeler, humorist and political activist.  Pete wrote more than three dozen original songs and produced many albums of music which he performed for UU congregations throughout the South. He died unexpectedly, and far too soon, at his home in Raleigh on December 23, 2014 at the age of 73. Join us as we remember Pete in his own words and music.
