Pete Seeger turns 90

It's hard to think of someone more revered as not only a great musician but a great person in music than Pete Seeger.

The folk singer known for popularizing "We Shall Overcome" and writing songs like "Turn, Turn, Turn" turns 90 on Sunday, and the momentous occasion is being marked by a blowout, all-star concert at Madison Square Garden. I recently talked to Pete Seeger over the phone, and he was delightful to talk to.

Check out this story I wrote about it, and enjoy this clip from him singing with Bruce Springsteen during the Obama inauguration festivities.
