Pete Seeger, Singing With 'Tomorrow's Children'

Pete Seeger's music helped popularize the folk music genre. For nearly eight decades, Seeger has inspired generations of fans with songs about peace, social justice and civil rights.

The son of a professor of musicology and a classical violinist, Seeger grew up surrounded by music and learned how to play the ukulele, the guitar and the banjo by the time he was a teenager.

For his latest album, Tomorrow's Children, Seeger plays and sings along with a chorus of kids from Beacon, N.Y.
