Pete Seeger (1919-2014) was an American singer/songwriter.

"For nearly 70 years as a performer, Pete Seeger has embodied the ideals of folk music—communication, entertainment, social comment, historical continuity, inclusiveness. The songs he has written, and those he has discovered and shared, have helped preserve our cultural heritage, imprinting adults and children with the sounds, traditions and values of our global past and present. A fearless warrior for social justice and the environment, Pete's political activism—from the Civil Rights movement and anti-McCarthyism to resistance to fascism and the wars in Vietnam and the Middle East—has become the template for subsequent generations of musicians and ordinary citizens with something to say about the world."
