We all forget so quickly.

I find it sad that no-one has mentioned the stripped back to basics version of this that Pete Seeger did.

I may be an old man now but I will never forget the songs that Pete introduced me to in the fifties and sixties. We all owe such a debt to him for the music he preserved, perpetuated and created.

I feel so lucky to have lived during the time that Pete was performing.
