For Pete's Sake: Celebrating Pete Seeger's 95th Birthday

Saturday would have been folk-music giant Pete Seeger’s 95th birthday. (He died in January.) So good-hearted Minneapolis singer Larry Long has organized “For Pete’s Sake,” a concert to honor his activist pal Seeger. The well-connected Long has enlisted about 95 guests, including singer/musicians Robert Robinson, Prudence Johnson, Tony Glover, Chastity Brown, Mitch Walking Elk and Aimee Bryant as well as Sharon Sayles Benton, Louis Alemayehu, Josie Johnson, Ann Bancroft and others to recite Seeger’s written work. Scenes from Minnesota filmmaker’s Bill Eigen’s 2007 documentary, “Pete Seeger: The Power of Song,” also will be shown. The event is a fundraiser for the Park Avenue Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School in south Minneapolis. Read a profile of Long at Jon Bream
