Pete Seeger was a fearless warrior for social justice and the environment. "For nearly 70 years as a performer, Pete embodied the ideals of folk music - communication, entertainment, social comment, historical continuity, inclusiveness. The songs he wrote, and those he discovered and shared, have helped preserve our cultural heritage, imprinting adults and children with the sounds, traditions and values of our global past and present. A fearless warrior for social justice and the environment, Pete's political activism... has become the template for subsequent generations of musicians and ordinary citizens with something to say about the world."
