Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Bash

I'm just writing to let you know how touched & grateful I was by your poem/dedication to Pete on Sunday. It was definitely the high point of the whole concert for me! Not only was the writing superb, but your warmth & heartfelt, yet skillful delivery were worthy of a fine actress! You managed to evoke in the audience's "mind's eyes" a vivid experience of those days in Beacon, and at once humanized yet lent impetus for our further appreciation of the "Beacon Seegers".  - Bill Vanaver

Peggy Quotes 2

The collaboration of a septuagenarian American folk music legend and a British experimental dance music producer may be highly improbable, but folk grande dame Peggy Seeger and Broadcaster have pulled off a genre-defying album full of hypnotic and hook-laden delights.

I'm teaching a semester of songwriting again at Northeastern University. We sit there sizing each other up on September 11, me and 12 unsuspecting chicks. I tell them: 'no guitars, you sing unaccompanied' and 'you don't write your own tunes. only the words.' Miracle of miracles, they stayed, for a total of 24 classes. Well, I had a wonderful time, as usual. I always learn so much when I teach and the system that I had for songwriting with them produced some stunning songs. Only three of them were music students ... the others were taking Music Industry, Photography and various commercial courses. One of them could barely sing but by the end of the course he SANG and the rest of the class loved it and supported him.
