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

With the singing voice of a 20-year old, the tone and temperament of a slightly acidic and world-wise 40-year old, and possessing the studied acumen of a 500-year old, the lady enjoyed a warm intimate gathering of friends and family upon the occasion of her 70th birthday at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, England.
- Mark S. Tucker

 

It's Pete!

Peggy Seeger's New Song for Pete Seeger's 94th Birthday on May 3, 2013

IT'S PETE! (2:58). Credits - words, Peggy Seeger and Irene Pyper-Scott;  music, copyright, vocals, piano, vocal and banjo Peggy Seeger; oboe, Kate St. John; recorded by Neill MacColl who also plays bass.


Peggy writes: I've always marvelled at Pete's ability to get people to sing together. This song, made for his 94th birthday, was recorded with my son Neill & his sweetie, Kate, is a bit of an extrapolation on that skill of his. I do hope he likes it - but whatever his reaction, I"m sure he will join in on the chorus. Happy birthday, Pete!
