Everything Changes

Peggy-Seeger-Everything-Changes.jpg

"Her singing is as highly charged as ever and her writing as pointed and witty."
English Dance & Song Winter 2014

"...a quietly compelling album of songs that took a lifetime to be able to write and sing. A most eloquent and rich album."
Sing Out

"This album is a revelation. Throughout her lengthy career, Peggy Seeger has proved that she is a thoughtful songwriter with an easygoing voice that offsets her often angry lyrics, but here she explores new, pained and personal territory, and does so with delicacy and soul. Listening to her relaxed, often acrobatic vocals, it's hard to believe she's 79."

Robin Denselow, The Guardian (UK)


"In every way, shape and form, this is a remarkable album. It's an album which makes some stern demands on you.  But that's nothing to the demands it makes on Seeger herself.  The fact that she meets them all with such relish, confidence and conviction make it very special."
Colin Irwin, fRoots


"Peggy Seeger is a monumental figure in folk and modern music but this proves that she is still vibrant and relevant.  This is definitely Peggy Seeger at her best."

PEGGY SEEGER

FIRST TIME EVER: A Memoir

 ‘The songs: I am theirs and they are mine while I’m here. I call them mine since I have nurtured them like children and brought them forth with me in time. Like my physical children, they form my core. I revel in them, tasting the words as I sing, entering earlier eras and other people’s lives.’

    “a remarkable life story well told. A quirky, unique, and fabulously memorable memoir.” Kircus Review

    ‘A funny, incisive and affecting memoir’ Financial Times

    ‘Peggy Seeger’s life is the stuff of a rip-roaring blockbuster. An illuminating, witty, revelatory and unflinchingly candid account, presented in vivid vignettes’  Mojo Magazine

    'Rugged, occasionally riotous, memoir [...] Comes with the kind of thorough detail that defines the word "evocative" [...] Seeger writes with sharp and candid wit, devoid of sentimentality.' - Irish Independent

    Peggy Seeger - Folk Singer, Songmaker, Activist

     

     

    "This sparky woman has done so much, lived so much, crammed so much in. Most of all,
    she has informed our appreciation of British and North American folk music, like very, very
    few people have. Then factor in her multiple roles in illuminating the folk, political song and feminist scenes and how her songs have enriched the folk idiom, and you have somebody
    worth getting amazed about."  - Ken Hunt / fRoots
