Pete Seeger, the banjo-picking troubadour who sang for migrant workers, college students and star-struck presidents in a career that introduced generations of Americans to their folk music heritage, died Monday at the age of 94.

Seeger's grandson, Kitama Cahill-Jackson, said his grandfather died peacefully in his sleep around 9:30 p.m. at New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he had been for six days. Family members were with him.

"He was chopping wood 10 days ago," Cahill-Jackson recalled.

From his New York Times  obituary —

"Planning to be a journalist, Mr. Seeger attended Harvard,
where he founded a radical newspaper and joined the
Young Communist League."

From yesterday morning's Log24 rosemary link —

"I'll be seeing you in all the old familiar places."
