Since 1959, Seeger has written hundreds of songs. Those who regard Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Laura Nyro as the first generation of singer-songwriters to craft material from women's experiences should think again. Seeger is a missing link between the 1950s American folk-song revival and women's liberation; the guitar-toting chanteuses of the 1970s could not have existed without either of those movements. - Laura Pellegrinellli, The Village Voice

Peggy Quotes 2

First off, Seeger's a daunting multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, autoharp, banjo, piano, concertina, and of course singing. However, she doesn't just play, she demonstrates a fluency surprising even for an overachiever on the banjo, and her vocals can be either bird-on-a-wire delicate or gusty, ringing with authority and surprising projection.

Martin Guitars want to create a signature guitar for me so down I go to the Martin factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. Anyone interested in guitars has GOT to visit there ... but oops again! Dolly Parton wants a signature guitar so Yours Truly's guitar has been sidelined, probably permanently. Never believed it would happen anyway. But had it not been broached I never would have seen the factory. The Nazareth stop was on the way to Virginia to record with brother Mike. We're making an album of the songs we sang as children, trying to keep them as basic as they were on the original recordings. Poor Mike - I've changed so many of the songs around and he hasn't. So I follow his lead. We get a bass player in ... I really like this photograph.
