Happy Birthday Pete Seeger
It's his 89th birthday today. Jean King just called to remind me (I had forgotten).
Two years ago we cooperated to create SeegerFest, which thanks to the Internet and Jean's nationwide contacts, led to celebrations of Pete's 87th birthday all across the country. I recall there were more than 40 events altogether.
For young readers who may not know the name, please Google and listen to his music. Better yet, try singing it yourself and see if his songs change your life.
