Pete Seeger: In Memoriam, Gibson’s Classic Interview with the Folk Legend

Seeger for a PBS “American Masters” documentary. Seeger, who passed away yesterday (Jan. 27) at age 94, certainly experienced one of the great artistic
journeys in American culture. In a career that spanned three quarters of a century, he also embodied the idealism that once defined the American spirit.
