Goodnight, Pete

This splendid photo of the late, great man is from an article in last Sunday’s Observer, Farewell, Pete Seeger, by Ed Vulliamy and Rufus Wainwright.

Pete Seeger has left this world, but for most of his 94 years he was actively making it a better place.

In California, Berkeley folk venue Freight and Salvage held a tribute and farewell concert and sing-along  on the evening of 3 February. The audience queued for hours to get a seat. I would love to have been there, but an old friend who was one of the performers let me know how to hear it – the whole concert can be found until 10 February in the radio archive of KPFA. It was a wonderful show, tender and funny and emotional and very happy.
