***Pete Seeger Passes at 94-Yes, Where Have All The Flowers Gone ....

There were more profound influences on my music appreciation development than Pete Seeger like the early Bob Dylan. There were more memorable songs than Pete’s that I heard when I first came to folk music after listening to Dave Von Ronk’s Come All You Fair And Tender Ladies. But the transmission belt for all of that tradition, all of that after Woody Guthrie’s health failed him, was one Pete Seeger. That is a worthy epitaph for a man who gave the genre his all. RIP-Pete
