About Pete Seeger (1919-2014)

Pete Seeger was a member of the leftist-activist New York band ‘The Almanac Singers’ in 1941-1943 with Lee Hays, Millard Lampell and Woody Guthrie. He co-founded ‘The Weavers’ in 1948, a successful folk-pop quartet that was plagued by McCarthyism blacklisting in 1952, and which he left to pursue a solo career:
