Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Power of Song-PBS, Feb 27
By the way, a question for the trad-folk purists among us:

Pete Seeger wrote quite a few notable original songs that he has continued to perform throughout his life, and upon which a good portion of his fame and acclaim have been based. Does HE fall short of your definition of a folksinger; is HE a mere "singer-songwriter"?
