Peggy Quotes

For me, the Peggy Seeger concert was a trip to the past -- so many coffee houses, hootenannies, and sing-alongs in the '50's and '60's, so much outrage, so much hope, so many dreams. It was a reminder of our heritage of ballads and story songs -- of our country and its roots in the Old World. - Lucy V. Parker

Peggy Quotes 2

I am writing to thank you for making your wonderful music, doing your wonderful activism, and for letting the two commingle as you have. I am a young woman and a feminist. Your music has shaped my life and guided me through disappointment, disenfranchisement, and cynicism.
- Loren Grace

 

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 is now a well-adjusted mix of the old and the new with 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.
