Looks like we don't have Pete Seeger salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1He was named as a Communist by Burl Ives in 1952.
2His first child, a son, named Peter Ota Seeger born in 1944, died at six months of age, while Pete was deployed overseas.
3Hudson Valley, New York [May 2006]
4He was one of Bob Dylan's biggest advocates among the folk scene. When Dylan went "electric" (with a backing band) at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, however, Seeger was reported to be enraged and even, some claim, tried to severe the power to the amplifiers with an ax. Seeger, for his part, said this never happened but admitted to being annoyed at the time, not because Dylan was "turning his back" on folk music but because he and his friends couldn't hear any of the words over the rock music on what they felt was an overly loud, poorly mixed sound-system.
5Father of Tinya V.S. Seeger and father-in-law of Shabazz A. Jackson of Beacon, New York; Grandfather of Moraya Seeger Jackson (born in 1988) and grandfather-in-law of Christopher Landis DeGeare of Minnesota.
6Stepbrother-in-law of Ewan MacColl.
7Stepuncle of Neil MacColl.
8Made an appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967) but the song he performed, "Waist Deep in The Big Muddy" (an allegory about the then-escalating Vietnam War), was deemed too controversial by the CBS network, and it was censored from the broadcast.
9Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1972.
10He was awarded the American National Medal of the Arts in 1994 by the National Endowment of the Arts in Washington D.C.
11He is a composer, lyricist, vocalist, and banjo player.
12Is part of a distinguished musical family. His parents were teacher and musicologist Charles Seeger and classical violinist Constance Edson. His half brother and sister were born to Charles and second wife composer Ruth Crawford Seeger, and are singers Mike Seeger and Peggy Seeger.
13Kennedy Center Honoree, 1994.
14Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 (under the category Early Influence).
15Has performed with both Woody Guthrie and Arlo Guthrie.
16He wrote the song "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season)", which was recorded by Judy Collins and later became a #1 hit for The Byrds in 1965. The lyrics were adapted from the Old Testament of the Bible; namely from the Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3, Verses 1-8.
17The inscription on his banjo reads: "This instrument surrounds hate and forces it to surrender."
18Is an advocate of alternative fuel vehicles, and owns an electric pick-up truck.
19The Harry Chapin song, "Old Folkie", is a tribute to Seeger.

#Quote
1Where have all the flowers gone Long time passing?
2The world would never amount to a hill of beans if people didn't use their imaginations to think of the impossible.
3[excerpt from testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee: August 18, 1955] I have sung for Americans of every political persuasion, and I am proud that I never refuse to sing to an audience, no matter what religion or the color of their skin or situation in life. I have sung in hobo jungles, and I have sung for the Rockefellers. And I am proud that I never refused to sing for anybody.
4[further testimony] I decline to discuss, under compulsion, where I have sung, and who has sung my songs, and who else has sung with me, and the people I have known. I love my country very dearly, and I greatly resent the implication that some of the places I have sung and some of the people that I have known, and some of my opinions, whether they are religious or philosophical, or I might be a vegetarian, make me any less of an American. I will tell you about my songs, but I am not interested in telling you who wrote them. I will tell you about my songs, and I am not interested in who listened to them.
5Songs won't save the planet, but neither will books or speeches.
6If there's something wrong, speak up!
7If I've got a talent, it's for picking the right song at the right time for the right audience. And I can always get people to sing with me.
8I still call myself a communist, because communism is no more of what Russia made of it than Christianity is what churches make of it. But if by some freak of history communism had caught up with this country, I would have been one of the first people thrown in jail.
9To every thing {turn, turn, turn} There is a season [turn, turn, turn] And a time for every purpose under heaven.
10It's a very important thing to learn to talk to people you disagree with.
11People wanting autographs. I have a special form letter that starts off: "I wish I could persuade you that collecting autographs is one of the more foolish ways we can spend our precious days. There are important things needing to be done in every community." How can people be brought together to do these important things? I've tried with banjos and boats.
12[I receive letters] asking if I will come and accept an award someplace. This is a more general letter: "Dear so and so, thank you for your invitation, but...." A big word "but." I work hard on these letters: "My lefty reputation kept me out of the spotlight, but now I've blown my cover. I have to say no to all sorts of good people who want me to listen to their CD, read their book...."
13Songs are weapons.
14Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
15(About his songs) "Some may find them merely diverting melodies. Others may find them incitements to Red revolution. And who will say if either or both is wrong? Not I." - (Interview: "Rolling Stone Magazine"; April 13, 1972)
