Legendary folksinger, songwriter, activist, environmentalist, and peace advocate Pete Seeger passed away five years ago, but had he lived he would have celebrated his 100th birthday this May 3rd. In his honor St. Pete’s One City Chorus will present a free concert featuring musical tributes, videos and stories about Pete, and of course a sing-along of Pete’s best-loved songs. They’ll joined by the tribal-gypsy-disco-bluegrass duo the Urban Gypsies of Florida.
In his lifetime, Pete Seeger was an outspoken leader of virtually every progressive movement in his country. In the words of Barack Obama, Pete Seeger “believed in the power of community – to stand up for what’s right, speak out against what’s wrong, and move this country closer to the America he knew we could be. Over the years, Pete used his voice – and his hammer – to strike blows for worker’s rights and civil rights; world peace and environmental conservation. And he always invited us to sing along. For reminding us where we come from and showing us where we need to go, we will always be grateful to Pete Seeger.”
