Peggy Quotes 2

The beautiful thing about this album is the way it feels both contemporary and classic simultaneously. 'Everything Changes' will fit in perfectly with Seeger's previous work but will also introduce a whole new generation to a way of songwriting that isn't driven by radio minutes or a killer chorus, more by storytelling and getting a message to all those awake enough to listen.

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.
