Pete Seeger on the Mall..

Ok, I thought the crying of inauguration day was over… and then I found this in my reader…

…posted over at Effect Measure (Go over there and read the whole post) …. and I’m awash again.  I grew up listening to Pete Seeger, and I have a love for American Folk Music, and the movement that this music represents, instilled in me by my father. I love this Woody Guthrie classic… with and without the forbidden verses, I had to share.

  1. Bikemonkey- I LOVED IT!!! How perfect was that???

    Just for kicks I had to go back on youtube and look up ‘If I had a hammer’ and ‘Turn Turn Turn’… ah… how I love this music.

  3. Thanks for posting this. I was there, and FLIPPED when Pete came out, much to the annoyance of some of the kids in front of me (I’m sure they were thinking…”you’re freakin’ about THAT old guy?”). To sing THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND with PETE SEEGER + 500,000 others on the National Mall! I was crying. I love him.

  4. Emily- I was sitting in my office and I used an entire box of kleenex. I am SO envious that you were able to be there. What a moment.
