Pete Seeger [1]​[2]​ fue un músico de folk estadounidense que manifestó en toda su obra un compromiso social y de defensa de los derechos humanos, lo que le valió una persecución política en su país por parte del Comité de Asuntos Antiamericanos en 1951,[3]​ que lo condenó a doce meses de prisión y a diecisiete de total y absoluta censura en los medios de comunicación locales. Su carrera experimentó un gran auge a partir del movimiento hippie, en el decenio de los 1960, tanto por la calidad de sus composiciones como por su activismo pacifista.

„I have been singing folksongs of America and other lands to people everywhere. I am proud that I never refused to sing to any group of people because I might disagree with some of the ideas of some of the people listening to me.“

— Pete Seeger
Context: I have been singing folksongs of America and other lands to people everywhere. I am proud that I never refused to sing to any group of people because I might disagree with some of the ideas of some of the people listening to me. I have sung for rich and poor, for Americans of every possible political and religious opinion and persuasion, of every race, color, and creed. The House committee wished to pillory me because it didn’t like some few of the many thousands of places I have sung for. Statement to the court (1961) prior to his sentencing on contempt of Congress charges for his refusal to reveal names of communist or socialist acquaintances before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1955.

„If I had a hammer,
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening,
All over this land.“

— Pete Seeger
Context: If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning I'd hammer in the evening, All over this land. I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning, I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters, All over this land... Well I got a hammer, And I got a bell, And I got a song to sing, all over this land. It's the hammer of Justice, It's the bell of Freedom, It's the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters, All over this land. "If I Had A Hammer" (1949) Though Seeger composed the music of this song the lyrics were actually written by fellow member of The Weavers, Lee Hays.

„Shh. Listen to the sounds that surround you.“

— Pete Seeger
Context: Shh. Listen to the sounds that surround you. Notice the pitches, the volume, the timbre, the many lines of counterpoint. As light taught Monet to paint, the earth may be teaching you music.

„And because I love you
I'll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
It's too soon to die.“

— Pete Seeger
Context: One blue sky above us One ocean lapping all our shore One earth so green and round Who could ask for more And because I love you I'll give it one more try To show my rainbow race It's too soon to die. "My Rainbow Race" (1967)

„Well I got a hammer,
And I got a bell,
And I got a song to sing, all over this land.
It's the hammer of Justice,
It's the bell of Freedom,
It's the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.“
