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

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.

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.
