Pete Seeger turned 90 on May 3 (Thanks Barbara Moore for posting about this on Facebook)



In my opinion, Peter Paul and Mary sang If I Had A Hammer better than any group of that time. This video comes with a short intro by Pete Seeger. I saw PP & M perform this in the sixties and they were dyanamite!

Pris, sometimes living in the past is not so bad...I love Pete Seeger, and Peter, Paul and Mary--I am always impressed by your posts and I think we are very much alike. We are of the same generation and probably would've been very good friends had we met face to face years ago. Even now.

Hi Joyce
That's probably true and I think it's wonderful to rejoice in the good music of earlier years...if we didn't, no-one would be playing Beethoven, either:-)

They were great! I saw them once when they performed where I went to college and then again when they sang at The March On Washington before Martin Luther King gave his I Have a Dream speech. Thrilling!
