An icon of american folks music, Pete seeger, passed away yesterday at the age of 94. He was one of the most influential figures in american folks music. During his long and productive life he witnessed many important social and world events affecting directly Ordinary american people, such as WW2 and Vietnam war, and great deprssion of 1030's. He was never the one to sit on the fence on major social issues and suffered accordingly. His music was banned from main US broadcasting stations for his "communist ties", for a nperiod of time after the end of WW2.
Below one of my favourites tunes song by him. This tune was best described by one as "a tribute by one icon to another".
Rest in peace Pete, the people's singer....
