Peggy Quotes

Seeger's greatest asset is her uncanny ability to dissolve the gap between artist and audience. She belongs to a long line of musicians who sunder the meat from the bone effortlessly, rendering the unpalatable visible. Listening and watching her trawl through past and present, it was easy to see where Ani di Franco, Utah Philips and Bruce Springsteen drew from the well. - Siobhan Long, Irish Times

Songs of Love and Politics is a wonderful introduction to Peggy Seeger for those of you who are not familiar with her work and a delight to those love her work.

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.
