11:06 The Protest Singer: An Intimate Portrait of Pete Seeger
Pete Seeger, a seminal figure in American music, died this week aged 94. As a solo performer, songwriter, interpreter, and member of the legendary folk band the Weavers, Seeger brought traditional and political songs to the mainstream over the course of his 70-year career. In this programme, recorded for his 90th birthday, Seeger talks about keeping folk music alive and offers insights into the remarkable career of man who took on red-baiters, racists, war-mongers, and polluters and influenced generations of musicians from Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen.
