The folk singer is scheduled to receive the first Woody Guthrie Prize from the GRAMMY Museum next month
The GRAMMY Museum and Woody Guthrie Center’s celebration of folk singer Pete Seeger on Feb. 22 at the Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City will continue as planned.
Seeger was scheduled to accept the first-ever Woody Guthrie Prize award and perform at the event. Seeger died on Jan. 27.
The event and award presentation will serve as a celebration of Seeger’s musical legacy, as well as his connection to Guthrie and his work. The event has been retitled “How Can I Keep from Singing!” and event organizers are working to book acts for the show.
