Happy Birthday to Pete Seeger and Clearwater

Pete Seeger is 90 today and is still going strong for social and environmental causes. There are many articles on Pete around the web (Guardian, Folk Alley, NPR).

Tonight there will be an appreciation of Pete at the Madison Square Garden. The proceeds will benefit the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

Clearwater is a boat and an organization founded 1969 to raise awareness of the pollution of the Hudson River. The vessel is a 106 foot replica of 18th and 19th century ships that plied the Hudson.
In another two weeks, Clearwater will be 40 years old.
