Happy Birthday, Pete Seeger!

Folk legend Pete Seeger turns ninety today!  I was just singing a song of his (written with Lee Hays, fellow member of The Weavers) to M. yesterday afternoon while hammering nails into my raised bed square-foot garden:

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)
