Peggy Quotes

Since 1959, Seeger has written hundreds of songs. Those who regard Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Laura Nyro as the first generation of singer-songwriters to craft material from women's experiences should think again. Seeger is a missing link between the 1950s American folk-song revival and women's liberation; the guitar-toting chanteuses of the 1970s could not have existed without either of those movements. - Laura Pellegrinellli, The Village Voice

Peggy Quotes 2

One minute I was crying with laughter as Peggy read 1950s advice for wives.Then, like a curving ball from nowhere, a wave of emotion hit me and I was fighting to hide sobs, blinded by mascara, when Peggy sang The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

Somewhere around this time my last CD, Bring Me Home is nominated for a Grammy. In my category are Kathy Mattea, Tom Paxton, Rosalie Sorrels and ... Pete Seeger. Lucky I'm not competitive, at least not highly so. Eventually, Pete's good album Pete at 89 takes the prize. Nevermind. I already have one, waaaaaay back for The Long Harvest, a set of ballad records that Ewan MacColl and I made in the 1970s.
