The world has lost a great and wise man with the death of Pete Seeger ( "Folk legend, activist Pete Seeger dead at 94," Jan. 28). One of the primary lessons he tried to teach us was one of inclusiveness. It was impossible to attend a Pete Seeger concert and not feel invited to join in and to participate by singing along with him. His slight modification to an old African-American spiritual was to change the words from "I shall overcome," to "We shall overcome. " That slight inclusive change altered the course of our nation.

If you have followed Bruce Springsteen's career rabidly or even casually over the past 30 years or so, it shouldn't surprise you that he has gone all-out folksy on his latest effort, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, which hit stores today. Flecks of folk music have always glimmered in his work. However, in the past decade or so (save for 2002's The Rising), the Boss has delved deeper into the style - mostly eschewing grand, hard-driving rock for spare arrangements reflective of the often-somber, politically spiked tales he weaves.

Unidle Idols keep on singing Concert At the end of May's two-hour American Idol finale, 25-year-old rocker David Cook of Blue Springs, Mo., was announced winner of Fox's reality-television juggernaut, with 17-year-old Utah native and ballad-crooner David Archuleta finishing as the runner-up. Much of America and Cook himself seemed to be surprised by the results (Cook won by 12 million votes), considering that Archuleta had such an enormous following of tween and teen girls, as well as the highest profile during the season.

Beginning this weekend, the weekly revival series at the Charles Theatre turns its attention to film noir, those bleak, shadowy movies filled with easily duped guys led astray by morally questionable gals that dominated post-war America's movie screens. First up in the 14-week series is Otto Preminger's 1944 Laura, starring Dana Andrews as a detective who falls in love with a painting of a woman who may not be as dead as everyone thinks. The cast also includes Gene Tierney, Clifton Webb, Vincent Price and Judith Anderson.

An exhibition at a New York museum celebrating the Abraham Lincoln Brigade - a band of left-wing, largely communist American volunteers who fought against Francisco Franco in the Spanish Civil War about 70 years ago - is criticized by anti-Stalinist historians for its hagiographic bias. That was in March. An article co-written by a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of J. Robert Oppenheimer suggests that former State Department official Alger Hiss was not a Soviet spy in the 1930s after all. In it, another State Department functionary is posthumously identified as the spy - although he is obviously innocent - and the article is contemptuously (and justifiably)

When she was 16 years old and dreaming of a career as a musician, Emmylou Harris sought advice in a letter to a role model of hers, Pete Seeger. She was worried, she confided to the legendary folk singer, that her upbringing had been too sheltered, too full of contentment. With baggage like that, how could she ever hope to sing convincingly about suffering and hardship? Don't trouble yourself, came Seeger's reply; suffering and hardship will find you soon enough. The crack that developed in Harris' voice, familiar to her fans, suggests that Seeger knew what he was talking about.
