Music luminaries honored Pete Seeger on the shore of the Hudson River at Saturday's Clearwater Festival, the first of the annual music and environmental program he started to be held after his death.Sets were planned to focus on the music of the Weavers and Almanac Singers, both bands that featured Seeger, and highlighting the banjo, which Seeger frequently picked in concert.Lucinda Williams, Rufus Wainwright, Richard Thompson, the Mavericks, Norah Jones and Josh Ritter are among the headliners at the two-day festival expected to draw around 25,000 people.Chapin opened the tribute by singing "Midnight Special," a folk song recorded by Seeger and others.Two weeks later Seeger performed it with the Weavers at Carnegie Hall, and the song later became the title song to Paxton's first album.
