Father’s Day at the Freight with Steve Seskin, Keith Greeninger, & John Lester
A special Father’s Day show featuring three thought provoking singer-songwriters sharing songs and stories about fatherhood, family, and more.

For this special Father’s Day show Steve, Keith, and John will play two sets in-the- round.
Steve Seskin
Steve Seskin
Steve Seskin will have you wiping away a tear one minute and laughing out loud the next. His songs all have messages that touch the hearts of everyone: from the feelings of a little boy missing his father, to growing and being true to yourself, to one of his most well-known themes of being considerate to and respectful of one another as expressed in “Don’t Laugh at Me”. Steve has written seven number one songs, including the
Grammy-nominated “Grown Men Don’t Cry”, recorded by Tim McGraw, “No Doubt About It” and “For a Change”, recorded by Neal McCoy, “No Man’s Land” and “If You’ve Got Love”, recorded by John Michael Montgomery, “Daddy’s Money”, recorded by Ricochet, and the above mentioned “Don’t Laugh at Me”, which
was recorded by both Mark Willis and Peter, Paul, and Mary. This song became the impetus for the Operation Respect/Don’t Laugh at Me Project, a curriculum designed to teach tolerance in schools. The program has been implemented in more than 20,000 schools across the country.
Keith Greeninger
Keith Greeninger
What Keith Greeninger brings to his singing and songwriting is authenticity. As a result, there are no barriers between Keith, his music, and his audience. This bond stems from his underlying philosophy that music is first and foremost a gift and an experience to take part in together. Whether playing with his band or alone with just a guitar, he completely captivates an audience. From the deep grooves of a soulful ballad to the uplifting intensity of a hard-driving anthem, his rich vocal range conveys strength tempered with vulnerability, political struggle reflected in personal experience, and a deep connection to the land, community, and family. A fourth generation Northern Californian he has traveled and lived throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America. His music has been deeply influenced by his work with Native American and Latin cultures, and his songs cut an honest, hard worn path to places of simple truth about good people holding on to hope
and instinct in a world that often tries to strip these things away.
John Lester
John Lester
John Lester is an accomplished singer-songwriter-bassist, back home in the Bay Area after a decade of living
and touring in Europe. His sixth album, “Fathers and Sons” was released last Father’s Day and has garnered radio play across the US, including numerous features on KFOG’s Acoustic Sunrise. The album guests Grammy-nominated songwriter Gretchen Peters, pianist Barry Walsh, and Grammy-award winning fretless bassist Michael Manring. “Fathers and Sons” is a collection of John’s most personal and powerful work yet, inspired by the often unspoken family relationships between men. Each song messages the love, pain, struggle, and questions that arise and confound the dynamics of these ties and bonds. John’s life experience as father, husband, son, teacher, and storyteller is felt through these songs. Along with his 100-year- old upright bass, Sarah, John plays a variety of instruments including baritone guitar, nylon string guitar, and a little 1930’s Martin ukulele that belonged to a grandfather he never met.
