Pete Seeger Surprises at Farm Aid 2013
Farm Aid is known historically for collaborations and one-time performances in an intimate setting. This year, Farm Aid had all of those qualities, and even included a major surprise. Pete Seeger, now 94, made an appearance at Saratoga Springs’ Performing Arts Center to perform two songs, “If I Had a Hammer” and “This Land Is Your Land” before a sold out crowd. Flanked by Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp, Seeger encouraged all to help him sing, as he admitted he didn’t have much voice left. No one in the building seemed to care, as Seeger received one of the few standing ovations of the evening.
