Amazing Pete Seeger department…

Good afternoon, Netizens…

Just when you would think that aging Pete Seeger has all but disappeared from the world of music, he goes and does something that is like… well, like something Pete Seeger would do.

In Brattleboro, Vermont, Seeger will headline a Sept. 13 New England Farm Relief Concert in Brattleboro to raise money for a new micro-loan program being developed by The Carrot Project and the organization that operates the town’s annual Strolling of the Heifers.

Seeger, 89, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is known for hits including “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “If I Had a Hammer” and “Turn, Turn, Turn.” to name just a few.

The Carrot Project, a nonprofit based in Somerville, Mass., makes loans and guarantees available for small farms and people who use environmentally friendly practices. The Strolling of the Heifers is an annual event in Brattleboro in which flower-bedecked young cows are paraded down Main Street to celebrate Vermont’s agricultural tradition.

It warms the cockles of my old heart to see Pete’s name in lights once again…
