Thread Name: Peggy Seeger- Again
Subject: Peggy Seeger- Again
There is a large catalogue of Peggy threads but none of the titles suit my purpose so here is another...

Peggy Seeger did a concert here in Juneau last night. It had been nine years since she was here but she was superb. She is the most graceful performer I have ever met. totally at ease in the environment, interested in people and what they say, she creates a Peggy Seeger world wherein every one joins her.

Before the concert she came out and strolled among the people in the audience, sitting down here and there, dispensing handshakes and hugs almost equally. She was not a glad hander, there was nothing of the politician in her, just a recognition of humanity in common.

Then she performed. Supporting her voice alternately with banjo, 1907 guitar, concertina and piano she kept the audience with her every moment of the way.

She appears next in Seattle.
