There are names that are synonymous with folk music; Guthrie and Lomax come quickly to mind. Seeger is another such name. - Dirty Linen

Memoir

Everything Changes

Peggy-Seeger-Everything-Changes.jpg


"This album is a revelation. Throughout her lengthy career, Peggy Seeger has proved that she is a thoughtful songwriter with an easygoing voice that offsets her often angry lyrics, but here she explores new, pained and personal territory, and does so with delicacy and soul. Listening to her relaxed, often acrobatic vocals, it's hard to believe she's 79."

Robin Denselow, The Guardian (UK)


"In every way, shape and form, this is a remarkable album. It's an album which makes some stern demands on you.  But that's nothing to the demands it makes on Seeger herself.  The fact that she meets them all with such relish, confidence and conviction make it very special."
Colin Irwin, fRoots

 ‘The songs: I am theirs and they are mine while I’m here. I call them mine since I have nurtured them like children and brought them forth with me in time. Like my physical children, they form my core. I revel in them, tasting the words as I sing, entering earlier eras and other people’s lives.’

The Guardian #1 Music Book of the year 2017

Peggy Seeger - Folk Singer, Songmaker, Activist

 

 

 

"This sparky woman has done so much, lived so much, crammed so much in. Most of all,
she has informed our appreciation of British and North American folk music, like very, very
few people have. Then factor in her multiple roles in illuminating the folk, political song and feminist scenes and how her songs have enriched the folk idiom, and you have somebody
worth getting amazed about."  - Ken Hunt / fRoots
