Pete Seeger will be celebrated at this year's Clearwater Festival

Folk singer Pete Seeger's life will be celebrated at the annual Clearwater Festival this summer.

Seeger died in January at age 94, after surviving his wife Toshi by about seven months.

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

The couple founded the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and the annual music and environmental festival in the 1960s.

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