The Passing of Pete Seeger (1919 to 2014)

Pete Seeger, one of the greatest Americans in history, passed away yesterday at the age of 94. He has left an indelible mark on American and World music and culture. He led an exemplary life, even when slandered and blacklisted during the dark days of the McCarthy era. He had been married for nearly 70 years to his wife Toshi, who died last summer. He was active professionally as a musician, songwriter, and campaigner for a more just, equal, and humane world for about 75 years.

Pete Seeger authored or co-authored so many great songs it is hard to know where to start . . .[more coming].
