This Land is Your Land – Pete Seeger

May 3 2009 was Pete Seeger’s 90th birthday.  The concert at Madison Square Garden was to celebrate an amazing man with an amazing wife, and an amazing life.

This was performed at the “We Are One” Presidential Inaugural Concert, January 19, 2009.

The song was written by Woodie Guthrie in 1940, first recorded by him in 1944 at Folkway Records, but not released until 1951.
