NEW YORK (AP) - Pete Seeger’s grandson says the 92-year-old activist musician is “all fired up” about plans for a late-night march in New York City in support of Occupy Wall Street.

Tao (tow) Rodriguez Seeger says he plans to play “Pied Piper” after performing with his grandfather and other musicians Friday night in Manhattan.

Tao Seeger says he expects 750 people to attend the Clearwater environmental benefit at the Symphony Space performing arts organization. He’s inviting them outside afterward to sing and walk together.

Tao Seeger is a New Orleans resident. He recalls how a man there screamed at protesters. He says music may not change everyone’s minds but it can help people get along better.

He says the streets of New York are a great place to sing. As he puts it: “The city’s got great reverb.”
