Pete Seeger in Paisley

Well, no, I couldn't find a photo of him in paisley, but there are lots of photos of him in floral shirts, like this one by Andrew Sullivan:

“The key to the future of the world is finding the optimistic stories and letting them be known.”
--Pete Seeger, 1994, quoted in his 
New York Times obituary

Also in plaid, as here with Bruce Springsteen:

But this is how I remember him---wearing a blue work shirt on the album I listened to when I was little:

The whole LP is uploaded on youTube. I can still sing along to every song.

R.i.p., Pete Seeger

The 6 Degrees of Separation from Star Trek

In 1968 Leonard Nimoy recorded "If I Had a Hammer" (written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays in 1949) on Nimoy's album The Way I Feel. It's awful, but you can hear his version of the song here, if you want.
