Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger is unquestionably the foremost contemporary popularizer of American folk music. From his pop-folk successes with the Weavers in the late 1940s, through the 1950s, when he was blacklisted by the government, through the 1960s, when he became a cultural hero through his outspoken commitment to the antiwar and civil rights struggles, until now, Seeger has remained an indomitable, resourceful, and charming performer. He wrote a number of folk standards and has preserved and given exposure to thousands of other songs.
