Pete Seeger at 100
Celebrate Pete Seeger’s life and work on what would have been his 100th birthday. Folk singer, songwriter, labor and environmental activist Seeger was one of the most influential Americans of the 20th century. Local musicians with an affinity for his brand of social storytelling will perform Seeger’s music throughout the day, including a tribute concert featuring local folk icons Peter Bolland (“I’m like a less-pissed-off Steve Earle”), Peggy Watson (who supports many community, national, and international efforts through her concerts), Jim Hinton (who teaches and performs traditional Irish music), and others. Enjoy a musical story time and sing-along, eco-empowerment stations, talks and presentations, community art projects, and giveaways, as well as live music all day. The family-friendly event is presented by the Encinitas Branch of the San Diego County Library and offered in partnership with I Love a Clean San Diego, Surfrider Foundation, and several other collaborating agencies.
