Peggy Quotes

You might say Peggy is an artist who needs no introduction. Yet, here she revisits many traditional songs from her vast repertoire with finer voice and deeper appreciation than any of her previous recordings. She can make a traditional song sound timeless, yet as current as if written yesterday. She also includes one moving, bittersweet original song about growing old. This is the recording you want to play for a younger singer and say: "This is the way traditional music remains alive." - Rich Warren, WFMT

Peggy Quotes 2

My husband, Marky, teaches maths to  a group of very intelligent Further A Level students (they are about 17 - 18 yrs old and those super-intelligent whizz-kid types).  Yesterday they were getting a bit overloaded and fraught with the 'hard sums' so he played them the One Plus One video as a bit of a breather! They loved it!  Marky said all the frowns disappeared and they were all smiling and ready to go at the complex numbers again!

25 Irene on the Soren Larson.JPG

December 15, with the autumn weather still rampant in Boston, I fly away to New Zealand. An awful trip but Irene has given me her airmiles and upgraded me to business class for the worst leg of the trip, Los Angeles to Auckland (13 hours). From door-to-door it takes 36 hours. I travel easily but the business class was heaven. You can scoff champagne then lie down and sleep. I arrive on December 17 and on December 20 we're on the move. Drive from Kenepuru to Blenheim, fly to Wellington (North Island) and take the scenic train (12 hours) up to Auckland. Wonderful wonderful trip. We're heading for the Soren Larsen, a brigantine on which we are going to spend five days, her Christmas present to me. PEGGY HAS A ROTTEN COLD for the whole of the trip. Coughing, sneezing, aching, but the Soren was the place to be. Irene looks great though.
