Peggy Quotes

Her success lies largely with her ability to work and write within traditional modes. Many of these songs sound as though they have been around over the centuries. - Ira Mayer, New York Times

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!

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.


IT'S PETE!  play all


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!
