I think he's 82.

For residents of the Washington, DC region, he will be at the Smithsonian this coming Wednesday, 5/9, sponsored by the Smithsonian Associates. The event is listed as "sold out," but there's perhaps a chance of getting in at the last minute on account of no-shows. Details: http://residentassociates.org/rap/otomay/seeger.asp

Thank you for singing at my Jewish summer camp in the Catskill Mountains in 1962, introducing us all to "Wimoweh" and telling us that the lion may be sleeping but he's waking up, and you were right. And giving us all the gift of "We Shall Overcome" and how I felt when I linked arms with others in solidarity. Thank you for inspiring "Songs of Freedom and Struggle." Thank you for endorsing Henry Wallace in 1948, thank you not naming names during the blacklist, thank you for restoring hope whenever I listened to your music, that rainbows were possible after the rain, and in unity there is strength. Thank you for Lorre Wyatt and the Clearwater and the Sloopsingers, all the strawberry festivals and pumpkin festivals and singing and dancing as the October sun set over the Hudson. I love you, Pete.

When my folks were saying 'You can't sing!' Pete was the one who made me say 'Oh yes I can!'
Thanks for that and all the songs! Happy Birthday, many more.

I believe Pete was born May 3, 1919. I don't think he was born in August. Happy Birthday anyway to an incredibly wonderful American and influence one way or another on all of us.

Lucky P refreshed this thread which was over 3 years old. Nothing wrong with that, but I which people who did that would say they were.

Anyway, Pete's currently 85.

At 85, you can celebrate your birthday whenever you want! Here's to many more, Pete, whatever time of year!
