Thread Name: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
Subject: RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
Pete Seeger was one of the first musical influences in my life. He was the one who inspired me to get my first banjo. Pete demonstrated, more than anything else to me, the tremendous power of song in bringing people together.

His passing strikes a wistful chord with all of us who were enriched by his performance artistry and convictions.
