|Were he alive today, Pete Seeger, legendary musician, singer, songwriter and environmental activist, would be 100 years old in May. |
Pete Seeger was born in NYC but as a child lived with his family in South Nyack. He described being here as why he developed a deep love and appreciation for the Hudson River. He lived most of his life in the Hudson Valley and became committed to protecting our river. He founded the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater that sails the Hudson today.
A prolific songwriter and singer, he is remembered for “If I had a Hammer”, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”, “Turn! Turn! Turn!”, and many other songs. His recorded version of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” sold millions of copies. He was the winner of several Grammy Awards.
To honor Pete Seeger, his accomplishments and his contributions to protecting our river, bring a chair or a blanket to the South Nyack Franklin Street Park on Sunday, May 5th – from 6 – 8pm for a Musical Tribute for Pete Seeger.
Performers will include Leo Vera (with Steve White), Pat Keating, the Compton Maddux Band (w Steve Adler and Ian Moore) and Cool Mess (Pam Hudson and Michelle Solomon).
It will be an evening to remember.
