Pete Seeger at 90

Happy 90th birthday to Pete Seeger, one of our living national treasures. Website Folk Alley has some neat clips of Pete, Crooks and Liars has another good tune and links a good USA Today article on him, and we covered Pete back in January when he performed in the pre-inauguration concert at the Lincoln Memorial.

From Folk Alley, here's Pete Seeger on The Johnny Cash show in 1970:

Happy birthday, Pete.
