PETE SEEGER CELEBRATION
There will be a big bash (with every known folksinger alive performing!) tomorrow to celebrate Pete Seeger's 90th birthday and benefit the Clearwater & the Hudson river.
I saw Pete Seeger with his grandson and a friend in concert just last year and it was great! Some snapshots from the concert head this post.
The concert was at the same time as the Democratic convention last year, and I was thinking -- when Pete sang "This Land Is Your Land" that he should be singing that as an anthem at the convention!
Here's a link to information about the concert: http://www.seeger90.com/
And here's a post on PETE SEEGER: THE POWER OF SONG, a wonderful film about Pete Seeger! -- http://qporit.blogspot.com/2007/05/tff-pete-seeger-power-of-song-happy.html
