Monday Music: Sailing Down My Golden RIver
Pete Seeger wrote "Sailing Down My Golden River" in the 1960s when he got this crazy idea to drum up support to clean up the Hudson River by building a sloop to sail down the river and draw people's attention to the polluted waters. Pete was tireless in his attempts to make the world a better place. Here, in a special concert we hear Arlo Guthrie's daughter, Sarah, singing Pete's beautiful song. Being Arlo Guthrie's daughter also makes her Woody Guthrie's granddaughter, of course, which makes this an especially meaningful moment since Woody had been a mentor to Pete. To hear Pete Seeger performing this song, go here.
