BEACON, N.Y. (AP) — Folk singer Pete Seeger's life will be celebrated at the annual Clearwater Festival this summer.

Clearwater Festival organizers say the two-day show at Croton-on-Hudson starting June 21 will celebrate the couple's legacy.

Performers this year include Lucinda Williams, Norah Jones and Rufus Wainwright.
