AMERICAN MASTERS | Pete Seeger: The Power of Song | #3 | PBS

Duration: 03:38

AMERICAN MASTERS Pete Seeger: The Power of Song airs February 27 on PBS (check local listings). For more information, visit www.pbs.org/americanmasters

Pete Seeger helped introduce America to its own musical heritage, devoting his life to using the power of sing as a force for social change. Standing strong for deeply-held beliefs, Seeger went from the top of the pop charts to the top of the blacklist and was banned from American commercial television for more than 17 years. This determined singer/songwriter made his voice heard and encouraged the people of the world to sing out along with him. Now almost 90, Seeger continues to invigorate and inspire the musicians who help tell his story- including Joan Baez, Bruce Springsteen, Natalie Maines, Tom Paxton, Arlo Guthrie, and others.

In this online-only premiere, Pete Seeger performs a song called "Quite Early Morning."

AMERICAN MASTERS is produced for PBS by Thirteen/WNET New York.
