Much longer thread and tributes to Pete over in P&R of all places.

Remember hearing "If I had a Hammer" pretty often on the only station in Amarillo Texas back in the day.

RIP to a good man. I doubt the chemistry is there for his and his genre of folk music to ever be mainstreamed again.

I was raised on Pete Seeger music. My parents are old lefties.

I remember most of his songs as sung by others, but his contribution to the music of my development was massive.

His moral compass was so clear, and he so friendly. The planet was lucky to have him.

A troubadour of truth, love, peace, sister/brotherhood, work, protest and the power of community! He lives on in what he has given us.

Listening to his Broadside Ballads as I write this….

He gave us a lot more than a portfolio of music, that's for sure. Glad I lived some of the times he did.

That b&w footage from his show, Rainbow Quest, is all fantastic stuff.
