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

One minute I was crying with laughter as Peggy read 1950s advice for wives.Then, like a curving ball from nowhere, a wave of emotion hit me and I was fighting to hide sobs, blinded by mascara, when Peggy sang The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.
- Sue Brough

 

The Velvet Hills of Blenheim

velvet hillsThe Velvet Hills of Blenheim

2017

 
Blenheim, New Zealand is an interesting town. In its heyday it was beautiful until fire and flood took it out some decades ago. It was subjected to a fast re-build and may not be the prettiest town in the country but it has lots of facilities for all ages, from babies to those preparing for the next world.  Teenagers actually stay here, grow up and marry. Kids can roller-skate and cycle safely in its streets. I like going there, especially to the Ritual Cafe and Raupo and Anita’s Health Store.  I hope the people of Blenheim like this song, which really should have been sung by a Kiwi.
