PETE SEEGER
1919-2014

Farewell great American folk artist!

What a long, wonderful life
 full of important music and causes . . .

A worthy protege of Woody Guthrie.
Champion of the common man,
and worthy opponent of corrupt politics.
Environmentalist and war protestor.

2 Grammy award winner.
Rock-and-roll hall of fame inductee.
National Medal of Arts recipient.

Writer and performer of
unforgettable, universal songs of our times:

If I Had A Hammer
Turn, Turn, Turn
Where Have All The Flowers Gone

Farewell dear friend.
