Peggy Quotes

Undervalued as a songwriter - especially in the shadow of MacColl, Heading for Home is but one of scores of valuable songs that Seeger has written, many grafted onto or from the living tradition. Her themes are love and betrayal, human solitude and need for affection, as well as the broad sweeps of socialist, feminist values and ideas. I looked across the amber light of the stone, timber and whitewash Market House, heard the incessant, sleety rain on the roof and witnessed an audience enthralled, left to sing on their own and all heading for home with thoughts and emotions drawn from deep, deep wells. Great gig, Peggy! - Francis Devine, Irish Times

Peggy Quotes 2

The collaboration of a septuagenarian American folk music legend and a British experimental dance music producer may be highly improbable, but folk grande dame Peggy Seeger and Broadcaster have pulled off a genre-defying album full of hypnotic and hook-laden delights.

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.
