Pete Seeger, iconic folk singer
Pete Seeger, one of the giants of American folk music, died at 94 on January 27, 2014. Ask almost any folk singer from the 1940s through today, and they're likely to tell you Seeger was a friend, an influence or both. His gentle compositions helped drive the anti-war and civil rights movements of the 1960s, and he helped nurture other talents, including giving a leg up to a young Bob Dylan. When he died, lovers of music and peace the world over mourned. Read remembrances and memorials of this musical legend, then visit Seeger's obituary and Guest Book.
