Folk legend Pete Seeger joined his grandson Tao Rodriguez Seeger, composer David Amram, bluesman Guy Davis, Arlo Guthrie and a thousand other folks at Occupy Wall Street for a march in New York last night, according to our sister site Gothamist.

The march mixed popular Occupy Wall Street chants ("We are the 99 percent") with protests songs of yesteryear ("We Shall Overcome") along the way. Check out several videos of Seeger, Guthrie and all the other marchers singing in the streets:
