Folk legend Pete Seeger turned 90 yesterday and celebrated with a concert at Madison Square Garden.  Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, and many more sang the praises–literally–of the creator of “We Shall Overcome,” “If I Had a Hammer,” “Turn, Turn, Turn” and so many, so many more.

To celebrate all things Seeger, check out FolkAlley.com’s tribute page, which is rich with videos and well-wishes for the gentle musical giant.  A special treat is a constant audio stream of “memorable Seeger classics covered by artists likeTom Paxton, Bruce Cockburn, Janis Ian, Natalie Merchant, Greg Brown, and, of course, the iconic troubadour himself.”

Before you turn on the stream, check out his “This Land is Your Land” from the inauguration.
