Seeger birthday celebrations EVERYWHERE on May 3

Clay Eals, Steve Goodman's biographer (Facing The Music), has just posted a note drawing attention to the fact that there are going to be MANY celebrations for Pete on May 3.

Clay says "Spurred by the Internet proliferation of an idea advanced by Marie Goonan, a Seeger enthusiast from Melbourne, Australia, a grassroots movement has taken hold to schedule concerts all over the world on May 3, Seeger's 90th, to pay tribute to the legendary musician and humanitarian. Marie's apt and catchy suggestion for a theme for these shows is "For Pete's Sake: Sing!" "

He was kind enough to provide a list of events, and says "you might Google for more. Seems like shows keep getting added every day."
