Folk singer, activist Pete Seeger dies in US
American troubadour, folk music singer and activist Pete Seeger has died at a hospital in New York. He was 94. Seeger's grandson, Kitama Cahill-Jackson, sayid Seeger died Monday night after being hospitalized for six days.


Seeger gained fame as a member of The Weavers, the quartet formed in 1948 and had hits such as "Goodnight Irene." He continued performing and recording for six decades afterward and was still an activist as recently as October 2011 when he marched in New York City as part of the Occupy Wall Street protests. (AP)
