The world has lost one of its most revered folk singer-activists. Pete Seeger passed away last night in New York at the age of 94. Blacklisted during the McCarthy era for his left-wing views and lyrics, Seeger never backed off – but instead inspired a folk revival, writing songs about social justice and the environment. “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” is probably the most well-known. “He was out chopping wood ten days ago,” according to his grandson.
“Our mission is to gather together young people (starting at 9 years old) who are willing to make a commitment to social and environmental justice by singing, songwriting, recording, and performing to get the word out’about living in a more responsible world.”“Rivertown Kids work hard. We give our time and energy to be part of the solution to building a better world…in our own unique way.”
