Just heard that Pete Seeger died.

I won’t go into the details of his life the New York Times Link covers it pretty well but I’ll go into my personal expereience with him. My parents were big folk music fans back in the day so I grew up listening to all of their record collection virtually memorizing all of them. But Pete Seeger was definitely at the best among them. Both as a musical scholar, historian, activist and of course performer he excelled.

EvenĀ  when my tastes moved away from folk music I kept an interest in his career. The last I had seen him was on the Colbert Report last year where he looked well preserved but fading.

Anyway let’s see him off with one of his more fun and whimsical pieces that had me dancing and laughing as early as age six. Abiyoyo.
