Listen back: a tribute to Pete Seeger on his 85th birthday

Listen to this story
Pete Seeger died in his sleep last night - in a hospital in New York City with family at his side. He was 94 and at the end of a career that changed folk music and changed lives. One of his last public appearances was his surprise visit on stage at the Farm Aid concert in Saratoga last summer.

Almost 10 years ago, Adirondack folksinger Dan Berggren produced this tribute to Pete for North Country Public Radio. It was a birthday card, for Seeger's 85th birthday. We aired it May 3, 2004.
