Star-spangled Spectacular: Bicentennial of Our Nat
The valiant defense of Fort McHenry on the night of September 13, 1814, during the Battle of Baltimore inspired Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner." On the occasion of the anthem's 200th birthday, John Lithgow hosts a celebration of that event live from Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore. Co-hosted by recording artist and actress Jordin Sparks, the special also features performances by actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth; singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge; mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves-Montgomery; country group Little Big Town; a cappella group Pentatonix; singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson; singer Kenny Rogers; rock band Train; the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director Marin Alsop. The Baltimore harbor, replete with tall ships and naval vessels, serves as a stunning backdrop. The patriotic special will also include ceremonial activities at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, historical highlights and an extraordinary fireworks crescendo.

Episode #3501
Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Celebration From Madis
With a career spanning more than half a century, legendary folk artist and political activist, Pete Seeger turned 90 in May of 2009. Born to a large family of musicians, young Peter first learned to play the ukulele, graduating to the five-string banjo in the mid-1930s, ultimately mastering the instrument and in the process, galvanizing the American folk music movement. A pioneer of protest music, Seeger's anti-Vietnam War songs, including the now famous "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Turn, Turn, Turn," as well his interpretation of the Civil Rights anthem, "We Shall Overcome," garnered mainstream attention in the 1960's, revitalizing the genre and paving the way for countless other activist musicians-including Bob Dylan-to achieve widespread acclaim. Joining Seeger for a once-in-a-lifetime concert event in celebration of his milestone birthday at Madison Square Garden are Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Richie Havens, Emmylou Harris, Roger McGuinn, Ani DiFranco, Taj Mahal, Ben Harper, Peggy Seeger, Dave Matthews, and many others who perform songs inspired by his music and activism.
