"To my old brown Earth, to my old blue sky, I'll now give these last few molecules of 'I'"
Pete Seeger was instrumental in the fight to clean up our nation's rivers. He holds a special place in the hearts of all of us the Raritan River Festival, having headlined the very first Festival in 1980. His environmental philosophies informed and influenced the founders of the Raritan River Festival. It is not an understatement to say that there would be no Raritan River Festival if not for Pete Seeger.
Pete Seeger, 1919-2014.
