Folk legend Pete Seeger is having a birthday party at Madison Square Garden. The fact that the environmentalist crusader and pioneer of protest music is turning a spry 90 is a big reason to celebrate on its own, but when the guest list includes Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder, John Mellencamp, Ben Harper, Billy Bragg and Emmylou Harris, to name just a few of the 50+ artists scheduled to pay their respects on stage, it's time to kick up your heels and grab a ticket.
The proceeds for what is being billed as a "Sing-along Celebration" will go towards Seeger's Hudson River sloop, Clearwater,
which aims to help "create the next generation of environmental
leaders" through research, education and advocacy efforts to preserve
and protect the Hudson River.
The event takes place May 3rd at Madison Square Garden in New York City. More info can be found at Seeger90.com.
