Pete Seeger

I grew up listening to folk music. Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie sang the words that stirred within our hearts. His songs were authentic and real. He has died and we have lost an important bit of Americana. His voice will remain a reminder to all of us of his generation of the incredible lightness of his heart. He cared about all people and lived the way he sang.

I can remember a beautiful summer afternoon sitting on the grass in a field. I and others were there to hear Pete Seeger sing, as only Pete could sing. It was a wonderful concert and a bright memory in my mind and heart. Parents were sitting listening intently and the children were running around in rhythm with his banjo. I am sad that he is gone, but his voice and talent will ever remain a reminder of his words and tunes. His grandson has been touring with him the last few years and I am sure he will carry on with his grandfather’s legacy and also develop his own style too.
