Legendary Folk Musician Pete Seeger Dies At 94

Legendary Folk Musician Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger, the 1950′s era folk troubadour and 60′s political activist, has passed away. He was 94.

A cause of death has not been formally announced though it is known that Seeger had been in the New York Presbyterian Hospital for the past 6 days.

From Wikipedia:

Seeger was one of the folksingers most responsible for popularizing the spiritual “We Shall Overcome” (also recorded by Joan Baez and many other singer-activists) that became the acknowledged anthem of the 1960s American Civil Rights Movement.

Seeger’s grandson, Kitama Cahill-Jackson said that “He was chopping wood 10 days ago.” Official Facebook Page
