Folk singer Pete Seeger dead at 94
Pete Seeger, one of the most famous folk singers of our time, has died of natural causes.
Seeger was probably best known for "If I had a Hammer" and "Turn, Turn, Turn."
The 94-year-old popularized "We Shall Overcome."
Seeger was blacklisted in the McCarthy era, but decades later played at President Obama's inaugural concert.
Seeger was still performing last year and was up for a Grammy this past Sunday.
Seeger lived in upstate Beacon and died yesterday at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
