No Borders for Pete Seeger's Power of Song - For Pete Seeger, all music is world music. You could even say that throughout his nearly 70 years as a performer, his approach has been "think globally, sing locally." That's really just a corollary of his longstanding "think globally, act locally" philosophy, of course, and to him a sing-along -- and he's led many thousands of sing-alongs -- is just one form of social action. If nothing else comes through in director Jim Brown's 'Pete Seeger: Power of Song,' a marvelous new documentary on the remarkable life of the American folk-music giant, it is that notion, as loud and clear as his voice on a robust chorus of 'We Shall Overcome,' a song he gets credit for adapting and introducing as the anthem of the civil rights movement.
