Today is the centennial of Pete Seeger's birth. He was at the forefront of the folk revival of the 1950s and '60s. His music influenced generations of fans and musicians including Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. Seeger was a life-long advocate for environmental causes including the health of the Hudson River. He helped organize Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival - the annual festival that helps to preserve and protect the river.
