Who is Pete Seeger? Famed Folk Singer Dies at 94-Years-Old

Legendary folk singer Pete Seeger dies at 94-years-old and leaves behind a legacy of contemporary folk music.

Seeger, who died on Monday from natural causes, became famous for inspiring activist singer and songwriters through his own music. Best known for his hits like “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” and “If I Had a Hammer,” Pete Singer gained a major fan base with his influential style of music.

According to Kitama Cahiill Jackson, who is Seeger’s grandson, the folk singer died from natural causes at New York Presbyterian Hospital Monday evening. In a statement to the press, Jackson told reporters:

“He lived at a time when so many things hadn’t been done yet, the idea of making music about something hadn’t really been done. And now people do it all the time.”

Pete Seeger got his start in music thanks to his aunt who hired him to play songs for her class. Seeger told CNN in a 2009 interview,

“Pretty soon I was playing school after school, and I never did work on a newspaper. You don’t have to play at nightclubs, you don’t have to play on TV, just go from college to college to college, and the kids will sing along with you.”

Back in December, Seeger received heart surgery to replace a valve. While the surgery did not attribute to the singer’s death, Seeger became more feeble. The folk star was staying in the hospital 6 days prior to his death. For the last three days of his life, Seeger could not speak. The singer/songwriter died on Monday, January 27, 2014 in the late evening.
