Peggy Quotes

Undervalued as a songwriter - especially in the shadow of MacColl, Heading for Home is but one of scores of valuable songs that Seeger has written, many grafted onto or from the living tradition. Her themes are love and betrayal, human solitude and need for affection, as well as the broad sweeps of socialist, feminist values and ideas. I looked across the amber light of the stone, timber and whitewash Market House, heard the incessant, sleety rain on the roof and witnessed an audience enthralled, left to sing on their own and all heading for home with thoughts and emotions drawn from deep, deep wells. Great gig, Peggy! - Francis Devine, Irish Times

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.

November 11 is a signal day. I'm told I have breast cancer. I'm strangely unsettled. The world looks different, almost as if I am not in it. When I go outside the world seems noisy, chaotic ... I want to climb back into my Paul Gore Street shell. I've known so many people who have died from cancer, so many cancer 'survivors'. On November 25 I had a lumpectomy and as far as I'm concerned I no longer have cancer. I turned down the radiation, the Tamoxifen, and have gone onto a really strict nutritional and supplement regime. Have lost 18 pounds voluntarily and am happy as a clam. Funny saying that ... are clams happy? Oh ... I also have osteopenia. Severe osteoporosis. Clams probably don't get that or any of the other ailments I have.
