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

I fly out again to California to a banjo spree organised by Peter Pardee where I hear unbelievable things played on the five- and (shock! horror!) four-string banjo. I'm not an instrument 'collector' but I buy a nylon-strung banjo made by Kevin Enoch (above). Banjo players who sing with your banjo: it's a whole new story to sing against nylgut strings! Hard to keep in tune though.
