Protest Singer Pete Seeger Performs a Song for his 90th

May 3rd, 2009

Alec Wilkinson, author of The Protest Singer: An Intimate Portrait of Pete Seeger, visited Seeger at his home in Beacon, NY. Out of their conversation came a series of videos ranging from such topics as Bruce Springsteen to Thoreau. In celebration of the book and Pete’s 90th birthday on May 3rd, we give you an exclusive video of Pete singing and playing his banjo.
