We Shall Overcome The Seeger Sessions (2LP)

by Bruce Springsteen

We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions is the fourteenth studio album by Bruce Springsteen, released in 2006.

This is Springsteen's first and so far only album of non-Springsteen material and contains his interpretation of thirteen folk music songs made popular by activist folk musician Pete Seeger. As an activist and artist of folk music, Seeger did not write any of the songs on the album. His life's work focused on popularizing and promoting the ethic of local, historical musical influences and recognising the cultural significance of which folk music embodies.

In 2007, it won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album at the 49th Grammy Awards.
