Pete Seeger (May 3, 1919 - January 27, 2014)

Thanks Pete…

for a lifetime spent making and sharing music,
being a citizen of America and the world, acting locally
and thinking globally, teaching us how to sing together,
work together, dream together of a better, sustainable planet.

I feel blessed to have had so many chances to connect with Pete
- a hero of mine since childhood -
and always, it seems, for a good cause.

The last time was in November, 2013,
at the Towne Crier Café in Beacon, NY,
to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the creation of the Weavers.

To quote my friend Scott Ainslie:
"Mandela and Seeger. My oh my. Heaven is in for it."
