    Pete Seeger's gift to American music cannot be overstated. Using basic, often biblical themes, he created and interpreted a body of work which is ingrained in the American national consciousness, and helped to further define the American musical tradition. Appleseed Recordings head Jim Musselman undertook the task of creating a tribute to Seeger, bringing together some of the finest contemporary musicians, folk and otherwise, to interpret some of Seeger's songs.
    A standout track is "My Father's Mansions," contributed by British folk/rock troubadour and Woody Guthrie historian Billy Bragg and violinist Eliza Carthy. Seeger disciple Ani Difranco offers a disarmingly tender, delicate reading of "My Name Is Lisa Kalvelage." The most unusual track on the album, the Indigo Girls' take on "Letter To Eve" features processed vocals, elaborate percussion and production tricks. Seeger's standards are well represented: "Where Have All The Flowers Gone" is given a poignant treatment by Tommy Sands and Vedran Smilovic; Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt sing "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine," and Nanci Griffith performs "If I Had A Hammer" along with a band of notable Seeger devotees.
