I must say that I think you are are about the most authentic person I have ever seen on stage - you were just you - warm, intelligent, natural and funny - it was like sitting in your living room. Seems funny to even call it a concert. - Leo

Peggy Quotes 2

With the singing voice of a 20-year old, the tone and temperament of a slightly acidic and world-wise 40-year old, and possessing the studied acumen of a 500-year old, the lady enjoyed a warm intimate gathering of friends and family upon the occasion of her 70th birthday at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, England.
- Mark S. Tucker

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.
