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

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.

APRIL We both have business in London so it's off to England on April 11, another horrendous trip. Stay in a rental house in Norwood. The plan was to drive to Oxford to look for a place for me to settle when I move back to England next year. Irene got sick this time and plans changed somewhat but I managed to see enough of Oxford to know that I like it very much. I've been light on the photos since then. Flew back to the States with Irene to celebrate Bro Pete's 90th birthday - with 18,000 other people in Madison Square Gardens in NYC. Star-studded cast and 4 hours of music. I decided not to sing but instead to read a letter to Pete and Toshi. It was glorious to see so many many people there. The audience made the show for me, their enthusiasm and cheering and readiness to endure a very very long program. They filmed it all and I believe a movie is going to be made of it.
