Peggy Quotes

Peggy's instrumental virtuosity is legendary: guitar, 5-string banjo, autoharp, English concertina, piano, as well as possessing a most extraordinary singing voice which surely gets better every year of her life. Yet some of the most magical moments of the evening were to be had when Peggy simply sat at the piano and tinkered, sharing gentle musical anecdotes with us or poems dedicated to the loves of her life. - Dave VanDoorn, Tradition Magazine

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

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!
