Children listening to Pete Seeger

At Pete Seeger's requst, he did a special concert at the Jazz Festival for children.  This is a first as far as I am aware of having a concert for children at the Jazz Festival.  Pete is famous for getting the crowd to sing along with him and he did his usual masterful job in getting all in attendance singing along.
