It seemed like Pete Seeger had been around forever.  Certainly the songs he sung were timeless. His career spanned from the Great Depression to this year. He was a tireless fighter for working men and women and a champion of the environment, particularly his beloved Hudson River Valley. Pete Seeger can be spoken of in the same breath as Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and Bob Dylan. He played with everyone who was anyone in 20th century folk music.

But nothing made him happier than having ordinary people sing along with him. He believed that his songs were the songs of the people and they should share in the joy of singing them. He believed that participating in song was about the greatest thing human beings can do.
