Pete Seeger, modern folk pioneer, 1919-2014

I really want to stat up a major artifact, the banjo of surrounds hate and forces it to surrender.

Pete Seeger: "Theme From Goofin' Off Suite"

Pete Seeger and Brother Kirk: "The Ballad of Martin Luther King"

Related to Guthrie's guitar of fascist slaying?

May we all live as many years, and do as much good with them.

“When appearing on a Glen Campbell hosted television show in the late 1960s Pete Seeger paid homage to Guthrie’s phrase by writing 'This Machine Surrounds Hate and Forces it to Surrender’ on the calfskin head of his banjo and sang 'Waist Deep in the Big Muddy (and the Big Fool Says to Push On)’ over images of the drawn-out war in Vietnam.”

I knew the reference, but I didn't know that the two were directly related.

Yesterday, Pete passed away, having changed the world.

Today, I challenge you: do the same. Find a cause, plant your feet, and push. If you make progress, take a step forward, and push some more. Don't be afraid of yourself. Change the world.


The top 10 Pete Seeger cover songs.

Includes two tracks by one of my favorite bands, The Byrds, as well as Al Jardine and Richard Barone's cover of "If I Had A Hammer," featuring my friend Sam Kogon on bass. Lots of good music.
