Musicians will gather in St. Paul in May to honor Pete Seeger on what would have been the renowned folk singer and political activist’s 95th birthday. The concert — called “For Pete’s Sake: Celebrating Pete Seeger’s 95th Birthday” — will be held May 3 at the Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul. Seeger died Jan. 27 at age 94. The singer-songwriter was known for such folk classics as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” ”Turn, Turn, Turn” and “If I Had a Hammer.”
This week we’ve been gearing up for the holidays by unwrapping some of our gift ideas. Tuesday on the WCCO This Morning show, we “unwrapped” a local artist. Robert Robinson and his new CD could make a great stocking stuffer. His message promotes holiday peace and happiness.
Though he’s on the cusp of recording his 13th CD, which highlights and honors some of the greatest songs of his extensive career, Robinson’s humility is something to behold.
