Join Maurie, Bob & Margaret Fagan, Margaret Walters & a cast of thousands as we (slightly belatedly) celebrate Pete Seeger's 90th birthday.

All around the world folks have been celebrating the life of this wonderful man who inspired so many people in so many countries. He came to Australia in 1963 on a 10 month world tour.

"I would place Pete Seeger in the first rank of American folksingers."
- Carl Sandburg

"Peter Seeger is the best. Musician, songwriter, storyteller, showman, born teacher and the best song leader there ever was."
- Tom Chapin

"Peter Seeger is possessed of that rarest of human qualities - the inquiring mind. This gentle and at the same time fiery and unbeatable spirit pervades his music, his friendships, his beanpole body and his thought. His performances are true to our folk musicians faithfully and sensitively."
- Alan Lomax (From the LP "Darling Corey," 1950)
