For Pete’s Sake: A Pete Seeger Tribute Concert

Pete Seeger was one of the great consciences of this nation. Join us in celebrating his environmental legacy!

In addition to Pete’s work for social and economic justice, he sang often of the connections between people and the land they live on, and the collective obligation to safeguard our natural resources.

One of his chiefest loves was the Hudson River, and he wrote songs like “Sailing Up My Dirty Stream” to call attention to the severe pollution affecting it. Pete’s founding of Clearwater to safeguard the Hudson helped inspire water-protection and environmental organizations around the country, like Save the Sound and the Waterkeeper movement.

Please honor his legacy by joining Save the Sound and Friday Night Folk for a tribute concert honoring the work and music of Pete Seeger.
