Folk music and `60s protest legend Pete Seeger has joined in the Occupy Wall Street protest, replacing his banjo with two canes as he marched with throngs of people to Columbus Circle.
The 92-year-old Seeger occasionally sang "We Shall Overcome," a song he popularized generations ago as about a thousand people walked peacefully Friday and police watched from the sidelines before they arrived at Columbus Circle. Composer David Amram and bluesman Guy Davis were also in the crowd.
At the end of the march, Seeger, Amram and musician Arlo Guthrie led the group in the protest anthem.
Tao (tow) Rodriguez Seeger said his activist grandfather was "all fired up" about the late-night march after their scheduled performance with other musicians earlier at Symphony Space.
