Pete Seeger’s death marks the passing of a remarkable guy. I first heard him perform with the wonderful Weavers on a couple of great albums, and have followed him ever since. Hugely talented, ironic, he never lost his deep social and political commitment, and kept on growing till he died. A clear voice for change, a fabulous singer and banjo player and an American folk hero.

So long Pete, “it’s been good to know you”.
