On Sunday, Pete Seeger will be 90 and thousands of people are planning to celebrate with him.
The birthday man celebrate his big day at a New York City concert, headlined by Bruce Springsteen and Dave Matthews, to benefit one of Seeger’s favorite environmental groups, Clearwater. (tickets appear to still be available…)
Around the world there will be celebration gatherings on the theme of “For Pete’s Sake, Sing!”
Here’s a nice link to a page with Seeger encouraging folks to sing along with him: http://www.folkways.si.edu/learn_discover/sing_a_long_pete.aspx.
Favorite Pete Seeger songs, y’all? Or memories of when you first heard him sing? As the child of folkies, I can’t even remember my first time!
