Pete Seeger Catches the Westbound

Recommended Posts

Pete Seeger, the man considered to be one of the pioneers of contemporary folk music who inspired legions of activist singer-songwriters, died Monday.

 

He was 94.

 

Seeger's best known songs include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)" and "If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)."

 

His grandson Kitama Cahill Jackson says that the singer died of natural causes at New York Presbyterian Hospital on Monday evening.

Damn.

 

Thanks for the heads up.

 

Crazy how someone you never met can make you feel like you're in the same room as each other.

 

RIP.

Pete Seeger kind of exemplifies the late-1950's/ early-1960's folk music/protest music scene. He also pioneered a particular type of banjo, one with an extra-long neck, which gave the instrument another, lower octave, if memory serves.

 

RIP Pete, ya old commie.
