Folk legend Pete Seeger reunited with his younger sister Peggy for a rare concert, in celebration of Pete’s 95th birthday! For nearly 80 years as a performer, Pete Seeger has embodied the ideals of folk music — communication, entertainment, social comment, historical continuity, inclusiveness. His own songs and those he has discovered and shared, have imprinted adults and children with the sounds, traditions, and values of our global past and present. His fearless contributions, including his resistance against the McCarthy blacklist of the 1950s, have earned him a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Harvard Arts Medal, Kennedy Center Award, Presidential Medal of the Arts and membership in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Folksinger and multi-instrumentalist, Peggy Seeger is regarded as one of the foremost interpreters of US and UK traditional folk songs; a pioneering feminist songwriter and prolific recording artist, she has performed internationally, released 22 solo albums, and written for film, television and radio, earning a SONY Silver award.
