Here's what the legendary Pete Seeger had to say about the news, via the Newport Folk Fest website:

"If you like the old time singing and songwriting, you will like Beck. Like many of us he is a mix of many different heritages and styles. I like Beck’s new work without any accompanying instruments. Good songwriter. Good singer. Please welcome him to this year’s festival".
