Peggy Quotes

Peggy Seeger: She must be one of the most complete artists around today. Peggy Seeger's tongue-in-cheek look at life comes accompanied by music from all sorts of sources. Alongside the piano, the guitar, the Appalachian dulcimer, the concertina and the banjo, she set the lot aside for a moment or two last night and just simply created rhythm and music by taping the side of her guitar. For her it spelt out a sort of rhythm of life. - Neil Johnston, Belfast Telegraph

Peggy Quotes 2

In a world where stars can fade by age 25, it is great to review an album by a lady approaching her 70th birthday who has entertained and enlightened us for half a century. I believe that the second part of that accolade is the more important in assessing this diva of folk. Her songs always entertain but by making us think she achieves her greatest hold.

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.
