Happy 90th Birthday, Pete Seeger!

Happy birthday, Pete Seeger! I would just like to personally thank Pete Seeger for creating music that continues to enthrall and enchant my children on a daily basis. We’ve had “The Foolish Frog” on repeat for three years now. And I love that Pete Seeger’s general idea seems to be that if you can get a big group of people singing together, you’re doing alright. I agree.

For those of you who may not yet have wrapped your children up in the cult of Pete, our favorite CDs are Birds, Beasts, Bugs, and Fishes Little and Big: Animal Folk Songs (a whole CD of animal songs was Henry’s dream come true) and Children’s Concert at Town Hall (we listen to this every single day, honestly). We have also recently gotten into Abiyoyo (and Other Songs and Stories) which is only seven songs long and, in my opinion, has the weakest version of “Abiyoyo” but which is worth every penny for “Sam, the Whaler” and “Sweepy, Sweepy, Sweepy.”

I really don’t know what we’d do without the wonder of Pete Seeger and all he has contributed to my family’s musical taste, and for that I wish him a very happy birthday. With cupcakes.

    Love Pete Seeger. Foolish Frog is a favorite here, too. We got tickets for the Clearwater Festival this year … my first time going! I hope we get to see him.
