Here’s to Pete Seeger, who died in 2014, may he rest in peace. Pete Seeger was an inspiration to me and to millions of others all over the world. Now, I can’t say that I’ve been inspired by too many people in my life. I’m not an easy guy to inspire. But Pete did it for me. His example encouraged me to play guitar and to sing, he got me into folk music. All of my appreciation of music comes from that – which I would say is quite a treasure. I still cherish his memory – as well as his songs, which we continue to play. So, Pete lives on. Here’s Oh, Had I a Golden Thread, which we did the other night before the quarantine started.

It’s one of the most optimistic songs I know.
