Peggy Quotes

You might say Peggy is an artist who needs no introduction. Yet, here she revisits many traditional songs from her vast repertoire with finer voice and deeper appreciation than any of her previous recordings. She can make a traditional song sound timeless, yet as current as if written yesterday. She also includes one moving, bittersweet original song about growing old. This is the recording you want to play for a younger singer and say: "This is the way traditional music remains alive." - Rich Warren, WFMT

Appleseed Writes:

On May 29, 2005, Peggy's family, friends and fans flocked to London's Queen Elizabeth Hall to celebrate her 70th birthday - a few weeks early. The live 2-CD "Three Score and Ten" captures this historic evening of performances by Peggy and other members of some of the U.S. and U.K.'s foremost folk families - her brothers Mike and Pete Seeger (including the first ever recording of the three Seegers together!); British traditional music giants Martin Carthy, wife Norma Waterson, and daughter Eliza Carthy; Peggy's three children (Neill, Calum and Kitty) and longtime partner Irene Pyper-Scott; and contemporary folksinger/activist Billy Bragg, an ideological descendant of the Seeger/MacColl tradition. Graham Henderson and James McNally provide instrumental support. Features new and old songs, including "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," "Gonna Be an Engineer," and solo performances by Pete and Mike.

Peggy Writes:

I had a ball! Loved every moment! Thank you to everyone! Let's do it again!
