Peggy Quotes

For decades, Seeger has been one of the most authoritative voices in American and English folk...While she is acknowledged as an esteemed interpreter of traditional material and a gifted instrumentalist, she is perhaps best known for her observant and caustic original songs about women. - Chris Morris, Billboard

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.
- Mark S. Tucker

Jean Freedman, a Washington folk and history professor, is writing my biography. I visit her, she visits me every so often for an interview/visit and I talk and talk and talk and talk and talk. When you give yourself time to go into the past all kinds of memories surface from the deeps. Looking back, I'm trying to remember other items that might be of interest in the autumn. At one point I hit Media, Pennsylvania for a photo shoot with Jane Toohey whose yearly project is the Naked Folk Calendar. She puts me in a garden next to a quixotic stone head. It feels good to have no clothes on even though it's cold.
