Pete Seeger passes up on City Hall tour – this time

The word around town is folk music legend and political activist Pete Seeger passed on an invite from Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi to tour City Hall, citing a heavy schedule.

The 90-year-old Seeger is in town for a show at the Masonic Auditorium in Nob Hill Friday night.

However, Seeger suggested maybe next time he was in San Francisco he may take him up on the offer.

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,” Seeger wrote in one of his well-known songs, “Turn, Turn, Turn!”
