'Come on, sing it!' he shouts, and everyone sings. How did a humble, banjo-playing Harvard University dropout become one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century? This is the story of Pete Seeger - singer, songwriter, social activist, environmentalist - who filled his toolbox with songs and set out to repair whatever in the world was broken.
