Pete Seeger

From the time I watched "O' Brother Where Art Thou?" I've been in love with old-timey folk and bluegrass.  And, this morning I watched "Pete Seeger:  The Power of Song" and was really inspired by it.  I was surprised how many of the songs I knew.  It could've been his song or he may have covered it.  But, hearing a folk version of "Sixteen Tons" is definitely interesting.  And, hearing "Union Made" was different since I'm use to the Old Crow Medicine Show version.

If you don't like folk, it's really good, and so is Bluegrass.  Both have lovely instrumentation and are very beautiful.
