Pete Seeger: Celebrates 90th birthday at a concert in NYC
American folk singer and a key figure in the mid-20th century American folk music revival, Pete Seeger, is still singing well at 90.
More than 40 performers attended the birthday concert at New York's Madison Square Garden on Sunday night to honor the legendary folk singer.
Celebrities like Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Kris Kristofferson, Joan Baez, Dave Matthews, Arlo Guthrie and many others saluted Pete Seeger at his 90th birthday.
Pete Seeger opened the show playing flute solo called "Menomenee Love Song". He himself made occasional appearances throughout the 4 1/2-hour show.
The show ended with the 90 year old singer and all his guests doing an extended cover of Woody Guthrie's "This Land is My Land".
At the age of 90, Pete Seeger is still planning performances throughout the year. He performed last month in New Orleans.
In September 2008, Appleseed Recordings released "At 89", Seeger's first studio album in 12 years.
Pete Seeger won Grammy Award for best traditional album of 2008 for his record "At 89" in February.
