So Long, It's Been Good to Know Ya!

 

Pete Seeger passed on last week at the age of 94. Those of us who grew up in the 60's remember listening to and singing along (and hoping we sounded half as good) to his music.

Remembering Pete

Pete Seeger: In His Own Words is a good place to start, but then let's get down to his music. American Favorite Ballads showcases his knowledge of and love for American folk music. You can hear a good sampling of his songs on YouTube, in particular with those from the Spanish Civil War era, like this.

There are also a lot of Pete's songs available through Freegal. There is also a good DVD profiling his life and work, Pete Seeger: The Power of Song.

The music lives. Keep singing.
