There was also some great music at Stockholm’s Concert Hall in Sweden today.

It was in honor of the recipient of this year’s Freemuse Award.

He is American folksinger and songwriter Pete Seeger.

Mister Seeger wasn’t there to accept the award.

But he was ably represented by his grandson, Tao Rodriquez-Seeger, a musician in his own right.

Tao Rodriguez-Seeger is in Stockholm today to collect the Freemuse Award on behalf of his grandfather — Pete Seeger.
