Thread Name: Seeger genealogy
Subject: RE: Seeger geneology
Charles Seeger (the musicologist) had a brother John, who was, among other things, head of the Fieldston School in The Bronx, New York, and ran Camp Killoleet in Vermont. John's progeny (who are therefore cousins to Pete, Mike and Peggy) include Anthony Seeger, who is the head of Smithsonian/Folkways, and Kate Seeger, who is one of the Short Sisters.

I believe that Tao Rodriguez, who performed with Pete Seeger a few years ago, is Pete's grandson. Also in the next generation of Seegers: Peggy Seeger married Ewan MacColl, and their sons Calum MacColl and Neill MacColl have been known to perform as well.
