Peggy Quotes

Peggy Seeger: She must be one of the most complete artists around today. Peggy Seeger's tongue-in-cheek look at life comes accompanied by music from all sorts of sources. Alongside the piano, the guitar, the Appalachian dulcimer, the concertina and the banjo, she set the lot aside for a moment or two last night and just simply created rhythm and music by taping the side of her guitar. For her it spelt out a sort of rhythm of life. - Neil Johnston, Belfast Telegraph

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.
