Also, the annual Clearwater Festival, which takes place June 20-21 in Croton-on-Hudson, NY, will likely spend much of that weekend paying tribute to the legend. Performances are scheduled by Old Crow Medicine Show, Alejandro Escovedo, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, and others. For more information on the festival line-up and tickets, visit the Clearwater Festival Web site. For more on Seeger's contributions to American folk music, keep it here. I'll be writing a long article on that very subject for publication closer to his actual birthday. No reason to get all sappy about things just yet. In the meantime, here's a look at Pete Seeger's best songs, in my opinion.
