94-year-old American music icon Pete Seeger was an unannounced special guest at Farm Aid at SPAC on Saturday (September 21). Following his introduction by John Mellencamp, Seeger walked out on stage with his long-neck banjo and led the crowd in a sing-along of “If I Had a Hammer.”

Then Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and Willie Nelson joined him onstage as Seeger sang Woody Guthrie’s classic “This Land Is Your Land,” which included a new verse from Seeger that ended with the lyric, “New York was meant to be frack-free.”
