This one leaves me sad. What a tremendous human being and a great performer who just brought such a zest to his shows. I've been watching clips of him on Youtube. I just found him a compelling figure who brought a lot to this world.
Man, he was one of those I thought might never die. We need him around.
“I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs.

Give my regards to Woody, Pete.
A great man who delivered his message with quiet strength and authenticity. He was one of my wife's biggest heroes.

Here's a piece a musician I got to know through his two sisters; a tribute he wrote to Pete Seeger and recounting the first time he performed with him. It's a nice piece.
