The Whallonsburg Grange in Essex County held a tribute concert to celebrate the life of the beloved folk singer Pete Seeger. Seeger is remembered for his life of activism, as well as the positivity he brought to the world with his music. The husband-wife duo Mike + Ruthy performed a set list featuring his well known songs, while the crowd sang along. Having known Seeger, as well as performing live with him many times, his influence on their own music is easy to hear. Report by Tyler Warner.
