WENN

A historic gig by folk legend Pete Seeger has been announced for release a few days before the singer's 90th birthday.

The 105-minute concert film, Pete Seeger: Live In Australia 1963, will be available on DVD on April 28.

Recorded in Melbourne, the disc includes over 25 songs from the founding member of The Weavers, including 'If I Had A Hammer', 'A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall' and 'Down By The Riverside'.

The DVD also boasts almost an hour of bonus footage including three rare performances from Lead Belly in 1945.

On May 3, Seeger's 90th birthday will be marked by a benefit concert featuring performances from Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez and Seeger himself.
