Peggy Quotes

Undervalued as a songwriter - especially in the shadow of MacColl, Heading for Home is but one of scores of valuable songs that Seeger has written, many grafted onto or from the living tradition. Her themes are love and betrayal, human solitude and need for affection, as well as the broad sweeps of socialist, feminist values and ideas. I looked across the amber light of the stone, timber and whitewash Market House, heard the incessant, sleety rain on the roof and witnessed an audience enthralled, left to sing on their own and all heading for home with thoughts and emotions drawn from deep, deep wells. Great gig, Peggy! - Francis Devine, Irish Times

Peggy Quotes 2

Her singing is as highly charged as ever and her writing as pointed and witty.
- Dave Laing

Broadcaster’s back, pushing the boundaries once again with his first full-length album, Folksploitation. Featuring the unlikely juxtaposition of the vocals of folk icon Peggy Seeger and Broadcaster’s dub, hip hop, funk and techno beats, it turns the highly improbable into the possible, the traditional into the experimental and a conundrum into artistry.

“Excellent! I love this!” Janice Long, BBC Radio 2

“It's got under my skin and I think it's utterly beautiful” Dave Gorman, Absolute Radio

“thrilling contemporary takes on old folk themes” Daily Mirror

“There’s a burgeoning Scottish tradition of roots remixing … but it’s rarely done as smoothly as Folksploitation” 4 stars, i Newspaper (The Independent)

“Every track on Folksploitation is awesome and for once I don’t hesitate to use that word. Folksploitation is a masterpiece.” Indie Showcase

“This is sublime….. Seeger seems to be singing to us from the end of time itself - (the video) gives me goosebumps every time I watch it.” Spiral Earth

“Folksploitation has already ignited a whole new wave of interest in the woman whose voice cuts like the chant of a shamen across Broadcaster’s edgy techno beats with all the wisdom of the ages. It’s an utterly absorbing and frequently exhilarating experience. ….. Folksploitation is a thrilling, hypnotic experiment which Seeger’s die-hard fans will probably approach with trepidation. But ultimately, it’s a surprising triumph for this redoubtable singer’s capacity to push the boundaries and make her listeners think again.” Cry Me A Torch Song Blog
