Pete Seeger, the man considered to be one of the pioneers of contemporary folk music who inspired legions of activist singer-songwriters, died Monday.

He was 94.

Seeger’s best known songs include “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)” and “If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song).”

But his influence extended far beyond individual hits.

His grandson Kitama Cahill Jackson told CNN that the singer died of natural causes at New York Presbyterian Hospital on Monday evening.

Blessings and well wishes to Pete’s family.

  4. Hi a few years ago i drove up to your place on my way from Maine to Arizona and met you and rusty. Rusty took a picture of us. I gave you a couple of my cds and art. thanks for spending a few minutes. you had just got back from a horse ride. I had a couple songs that I wrote , I wanted you to hear, but I was speechless for the most part. I had just met my songwriting hero and he rode up on a horse. Any way if there is ever a chance you would have me perform one of the openings at one of your shows it would be an honor again! I raised three kids playing music for a living. Things are going well. Now Iam about 53 I started playing in Steamboat Colorado in the 1970s now live in Maine half the year. you can see dave bullard at the namm show youtube or soundwavz latin band youtube dave bullardbanjo youtube. thanks for all the fine tone!!!!! Dave Bullard

  5. I couldn’t find the link to register for ticket give aways. I’ve seen Willie a few times, the last was to introduce a long time fan, my red headed Mom. He was so gracious with her, taking time to sign a portrait of himself done by my brother for her. She was so thrilled. It would not have been possible without the help and coordination of his home office crew. They communicated with us via email so that my elderly Mother did not stand in line but rather was escorted to see Willie. I wanted to say a million thank yous again on her behalf. Her three daughters arranged it and accompanied her, it was a site to behold those two redheads talking like old friends.
