As one who has enjoyed Pete Seeger's music for over 50 years I feel that his 93rd birthday merits a mention on Mudcat. So, Happy Birthday Pete. ...........Forever Young.

The LOC American Folklife Center posted this on Facebook:

It's Pete Seeger's ninety-third birthday! As a teenager, Seeger was the first intern at the Archive of Folk Song, which is now the AFC Archive. Later, he went on to have number-one hits with The Weavers, and to become a leading light of the American folk revival, the Civil Rights movement, and the environmental movement. He has maintained a relationship with the Archive and Center all these years, crediting us as the source of many of his songs, donating some of his collections, and visiting us from time to time. In 2007, AFC organized a symposium honoring the Seeger family for their contributions to the Library and to American culture. It included two concerts, one in the Library's Coolidge Auditorium and one in nearby Silver Spring, MD. The concerts turned out to be the last time Pete played with his half-siblings, Mike and Peggy, before Mike died in 2009. AFC maintains a substantial site dedicated to the symposium, including webcasts of all the panels and the Coolidge concert, resource lists of Seeger materials at the Library, schedules, and a photo album. Please explore the site and wish one of our oldest friends a very happy birthday!

Happy 93rd Birthday!

This evening I spent almost four hours (!) on the phone with a good friend, discussing Pete and his music. But even four hours wouldn't be enough to put into words all that this remarkable man has given us.

And a member of AFM Local 1000. But he's NOT our oldest member. Faith Petric is our oldest member at 96.

Long may they both wave and continue to stir the pot.

Pete is one of the mainstays of our music.

I first got to see him way back in the 1950s at our local college.

Then I remember a wonderful concert he did here in Maine with Gordon Book as a benefit for the Apprentice Shop Boat Building Program in Rockland. Everything worked that night and thousands of dollars were raised for a good cause..

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Can't add to all that has been said already other than he was the reason I started playing banjo all those years ago and still have his books which are probably worth a lot as first edition complete with the tape.
Best wishes and many more
