Peggy Quotes

The muse who inspired Ewan MacColl's 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' has produced a body of work that is unparalleled in its vehemence and remains a fountain of inspiration in a sea of bogus political correctness. - Ken Hunt, Q Magazine

End of JUNE, and on my way to Albany for my beloved Old Songs Festival, I stop in Shutesbury, MA, to record a new text to an old tune. You'll find it on the website, entitled He's in the White House Now. Peter Siegel gives it energy and rhythm, harmony and yodel; and the recording engineer, Brian Bender, gives it OOMPH with the tuba. Didn't catch any of it on the camera. Old Songs is like an old friend, not hard to strut your stuff and so good to see so many of the people whom you have accompanied on the road of life: Lou and Peter Berryman, Louie Killen, Bill Vanaver, Jez Lowe, Charlie Baum, Barbara and Graham Dean, Ethel Raim, Catherine Foster and many others. Agent Josh Dunson and his wife Jean Pogge fly in from Chicago and, like groupies, attended all of my sessions. I'm flattered. It's a small festival - the organiser, Andy Spence, bless her cotton socks, has deliberately kept it that way. You can walk around it easily. The honey beer is to die for. Break my diet for it. JULY Irene arrives on Sunday and today is Wednesday. Better get busy and clean up the flat, See you next year.
