This sunny afternoon of songs, sing-alongs, and homespun philosophy is a long-overdue celebration, presented in Pete Seeger’s unique style. As the father of modern folk music, his knack for taking such familiar tunes as “Skip to My Lou” and “Comin’ Round the Mountain” and turning them into fresh fun for parents and children is well known.

“I still think globally, but I’m trying to sing more locally,” says Pete Seeger in the opening moments of this outdoor concert, filmed on the banks of the Hudson River in Kingston, New York. For over 25 years, his rambling river crusades aboard the sloop Clearwater have focused the public awareness on cleaning up America’s polluted waterways. But today, as Pete weaves his magic onstage surrounded by children, the sight of families swimming at the river’s edge in the background is encouragement that his best years as an activist/environmentalist are yet to come.

The gentle mingling of folk songs with a message results in a true family affair. “Cleaning up the river is just a little thing,” Pete concludes. “But if we win a few little battles, it gives you hope that one of these days we’re gonna win some, big big things: A world of peace.”
