He is the epitome of the American folk artist and troubadour, keeping alive a long tradition. Not only does he entertain, but he sings out loud as an activist. He sung against the Viet Nam War, he sung for civil rights. He co-founded the Clearwater sloop and is at the forefront of efforts to clean the Hudson River, educating people about pollution and inspiring them to do something about it. Throughout his life, he walks the walk, true to his message and the spirit of peace.
