Locals organize Pete Seeger singalong in the Civic Plaza this past weekend


As you may have heard, folk music legend Pete Seeger passed away earlier this week. Some music lovers organized an impromptu singalong via Facebook this past weekend, with dozens of folks coming to the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza to celebrate some of his best known songs, like "This Land is Your Land," "The Hammer Song," (aka "If I had a Hammer,") and more. Over 200 people RSVPed on their Facebook page, and by the looks of WTOP's recap, about 50 showed up -- a good crowd. Some folks brought banjos, guitars and other instruments came too.

Pretty cool to see this kind of thing, and I hope more events like this take place on the Civic Plaza. Photo by Heidi Thompson via Facebook
