Pete Seeger (1919-2014) is commonly considered a national treasure, and rightfully so. More than just a beloved folksinger, he worked tirelessly for the labor movement, civil rights, peace, and the environment. He is the only folksinger to have not only received the Kennedy Center Honors award (1994) but he was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1996). Pete Seeger was named one of America’s Living Legends by the Library of Congress in 2000.
