He wasn't just a folk singer and great banjo player.

Here's what he said to Congress when they tried to intimidate him into "naming names" during the House Un-American Activities Committee hearings.

"I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this."

He paid with a ruined career - which he eventually revived - and he outlived in good health all the bastards who tried to grind him down.
