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

I was at Cambridge Folk Festival this year, and you were my highlight!  Listening to you talk and sing about the importance of making conscious life decisions and the impact our seemingly isolated, individual decisions have on the rest of the world really resonated with me, as did your quiet approach to advocating for justice.  I was deeply moved, and it was a joy to listen to you.
Thank you so much.

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.


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!
