RIP Pete Seeger! A true original, uncompromising, trailblazer, advancing the folk revival(s), social justice, and environmental stewardship.

I saw him live a few times, most memorably at the Great Hudson River Revival - his folk festival benefiting the environmental organization he founded, Clearwater. (I think that was the first time I saw the great Emmylou Harris as well.)

It’s worth seeing the documentary on his life “The Power of Song” from 2007. I was lucky enough to catch the DC premier at AFI Silver, w/ director & some family (no Pete, but a concert afterwards featuring members of the Seeger and Guthrie clans in the Discovery courtyard:-) Hopefully PBS will air it again soon!
