Pete Seeger: Tomorrow’s Children

Snapshot_20100921_4 Folk singer Pete Seeger is 91-years-old and released a new album this past July.

Tomorrow’s Children is a very folksy and inspirational album wherein Pete Seeger and a gaggle of talented musicians, many of them children (the rivertown kids), celebrate community, nature, freedom, and multiculturalism.


Pete is on every track of the CD, showcasing his singing, storytelling, and banjo/12-string guitar skills.

The songs on Tomorrow’s Children are a good soundtrack for raising an internationally-minded generation.

I can’t really help but feel inspired when I am dishing out school lunch in my cupcake apron while listening to songs like "We Shall Not Be Moved" and "Turn, Turn, Turn".

Tomorrow’s Children was released on the Appleseed Recordings label.

    Awesome recommendation. I’m getting pretty tired of our Disney-riffic tunes.

    I love Pete Seeger. I use his stuff in my music class all the time! My students love his version of “Abiyoyo” and we use “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and “Turn Turn Turn” in 5th grade…the first for our civil rights lesson in January and the second for our ” moving-to-middle-school” lesson in June. And at age 91?? He’s still awesome!
