Thread Name: Pete Seeger's last concert
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's last concert
Nice story Don. I enjoyed it.

Pete has meant so much to so many of us, its hard to put into words all that he has done for us - people like myself, who never met him, saw him perform live even.

he was a skilled interpreter in a time when even Bob Dylan sounded outlandish. He introduced us to all sorts of ethnic music and artists that we should never have been aware of.

A superb folk artist, songwriter, and from all acounts a good man.
I once wrote to him and he found time to write a personal reply.

I wish him and his family some good times together.
