Peggy Quotes

On the exceptional Odd Collection, Peggy offers up 18 original songs - and one spoken word performance - that reveal her to be a perspicacious commentator on both personal and political issues and a gifted composer, lyricist and singer. - Mike Regenstreif, Sing Out

Peggy Quotes 2

The collaboration of a septuagenarian American folk music legend and a British experimental dance music producer may be highly improbable, but folk grande dame Peggy Seeger and Broadcaster have pulled off a genre-defying album full of hypnotic and hook-laden delights.

32 Irene and nobbly tree.JPG

2009 JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH Now back to 487 Kenepuru Road for what turns out to be a three-month lie-back-and-enjoy-the-NZ-summer. I have to get used to the fact that Irene is known in her habitat as Pyper. Pyper Scott. She made the name change when she ran Pyper's Place, her cafe in Asheville. People just called her Pyper and it being her mother's maiden name it came naturally to her to adopt it after her mother's death. We make the acquaintance of Earl Conroy, a nutrition guru (don't know if he would like that nomenclature) who, for our ills, takes us off meat, fowl, fish, dairy, wheat, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and other delights. Not so hard for Irene as she's been a vegetarian for forty years. We settle into supplements, citrus pectin, bowel cleanouts (thought we'd share that with you) and build-ups of immune systems. I lose 18 pounds over the 3 months. Am delighted. Trouble is, in October 2008 I gave away all the clothes that didn't fit me! Let's try on this a new image.
