Dunaway, ''How Can I Keep From Singing'', p. 32. Frank Damrosch, siding with Constance, fired Charles from Juilliard, see Judith Tick, ''Ruth Crawford Seeger: a Composer's Search for American Music'' (Oxford University Press, 1997), pp. 224–25. Beginning in 1936, Charles held various administrative positions in the federal government's Farm Resettlement program (Resettlement Administration), the WPA (Works Projects Administration)'s Federal Music Project (1938–1940), and the wartime Pan American Union. After World War II, he taught ethnomusicology at the University of California and Yale University. Dunaway, ''How Can I Keep From Singing'', pp. 22, 24. Winkler (2009), p. 4.

At thirteen Seeger entered prep school at the Avon Old Farms boarding school in Connecticut, where he was selected to attend Camp Rising Sun, the Louis August Jonas Foundation's international summer leadership program. During the summer of 1936, while traveling with his father and stepmother, Pete heard the five-string banjo for the first time at the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival (Bascom Lamar Lunsford#The Mountain Dance and Folk Festival) in western North Carolina near Asheville (Asheville, North Carolina), organized by local folklorist, lecturer, and traditional music performer Bascom Lamar Lunsford, whom Charles Seeger had hired for Farm Resettlement (Resettlement Administration) music projects. Dunaway, ''How Can I Keep From Singing'', pp. 48-49. The festival took place in a covered baseball field. There the Seegers watched square-dance teams from Bear Wallow, Happy Hollow, Cane Creek, Spooks Branch, Cheoah Valley, Bull Creek, and Soco Gap; heard the five-string banjo player Samantha Bumgarner; and family string bands, including a group of Indians from the Cherokee reservation who played string instruments and sang ballads. They wandered among the crowds who camped out at the edge of the field, hearing music being make there as well. As Lunsford’s daughter would later recall, those country people "held the riches that Dad had discovered. They could sing, fiddle, pick the banjos, and guitars with traditional grace and style found nowhere else but deep in the mountains. I can still hear those haunting melodies drift over the ball park." Judith Tick, ''Ruth Crawford Seeger'', p. 239. For the Seegers, experiencing the beauty of this music firsthand was a "conversion experience". Pete was deeply affected and, after learning basic strokes from Lunsford, spent much of the next four years trying to master the five-string banjo. Judith Tick, ''Ruth Crawford Seeger'', p. 239. The teenage Seeger also sometimes accompanied his parents to regular Saturday evening gatherings in at the Greenwich Village loft of painter and art teacher Thomas Hart Benton and his wife Rita. Benton, a lover of Americana, played "Cindy" (Cindy (folk song)) and "Old Joe Clark" with his students Charlie (Charles Pollock) and Jackson Pollock; friends from the "hillbilly" (Old-time music) recording industry; as well as avant-garde (avant-garde music) composers Carl Ruggles and Henry Cowell.
