Pete Seeger turns 90: hero of “unamerican activities”
Tomorrow Pete Seeger celebrates his 90th birthday with a Madison Square Garden event, in New York: a four-hour, all-star concert with Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder, John Mellencamp, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Ben Harper, Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, Juanes, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger and Taj Mahal. The concert will benefit and raise awareness for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, the environmental group founded by Seeger in 1966. The organization strives to preserve and protect the Hudson River.
In addition to being America’s best-loved folksinger and an untiring environmentalist, Pete Seeger is a national treasure. He has been at the forefront of the labor movement, the struggle for Civil Rights, the peace and anti-war movements, and the fight for a clean world. He has been a beacon for hope for millions of people all over the world.
Celebrate Pete’s 90th Birthday on May 3rd.
