music: pete seeger

I've come to the conclusion that Pete Seeger is more punk rock than most people who call themselves "punk rock." I love this guy's stuff! To me, he's one of the few people left who wrote "peoples music"–music everyone was intended sing along with, not just be entertained by. Most "worship artists" could learn a lot from him. He's inspired me to pick up the guitar again. The first two songs I want to master? "We Shall Overcome," in honor of Pete, and "Silent Night," just for the season.

Here's a great little audio documentary of the "scene" Pete helped establish.
