You Just Gotta love This!!!

I am and always will be an enormous Pete Seeger fan! Pete is the ultimate musician. (he can actually play Bach on his 5-string banjo!) He is teacher, activist, poet, environmentalist and founder of the modern folk music movement. He just celebrated his 89th birthday and this past weekend made an appearance at the Clearwater Folk Festival in New York State that he founded. He is as Harry Chapin described "The Old Folkie". I have had the extreme pleasure and profound honour of seeing Pete live twice and each occasion was magical. I thought I was finished being awed by the man and then this article appeared in today's New York Times.
The man is a legend in the truest sense of the word.
