Little Boxes, Shoals of Herring,either the Red Flag or the Internationale, anything by the Carter family. Kirsty's recording the name of which escapes me, and possibly "The first time ever" sung by Roberta Flack. One thing I'll guarantee is that she wont swear like she did the first time I heard her sing nearly 40 years ago.

I'm not sure I would predict Peggy won't swear. She's not one to be bound by conventions or rules. A bit of a rebel don'tcha know.

I think she'll definitely pick something by Elizabeth Cotton.

I find the idea of her choosing the Roberta Flack F.T.E. rather hard to believe . . . Ewan had a few choice words on that (to paraphrase greatly; "lie back and think of the royalty check")

I'll be amazed if it's more than 50% folk . . she comes from a "classical music" family.

If by classical music family you include Pete Seeger and Mike Seeger then surely it must mean classical American. Which means New Lost City Ramblers and Talking Birmingham Jam etc. etc

Peggy's parents were classically trained musicians before they got into folk music. Her mother, Ruth Crawford Seeger, was a composer. There is an article about her in todays Guardian and a concert of her work at Hoxton Hall, London,tonight. 020 7359 4404 for details. It's a fair bet that Peggy will play one of her mothers pieces tomorrow. Peggy is also a great admirer of Ella Fitzgerald.

If Peggy could take just one record it would be No2, the Bach. Her book, apart from The Bible and the Complete Works of Shakespeare, would be A Scots Quair by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. Her luxury would be a banjo with plastic head and an inexhaustible supply of strings amd pegs.

I heard most of the program today, I thought it was very moving stuff, the lady sounded very intelligent and compassionate to me (though can I confess that I had never heard of her before)
Can anyone provide more info. on Peggys music, I am intrigued

One of the Mudcatters told me a year ago that although she rarely got credit for it, Peggy is an absolutely supurb banjoist. Far better technically than most. Any thoughts?

I heard most of the prog this morning whilst cycling to work (it's a hell of a job listening to traffic AND trying to listen to the wireless!).

Good stuff indeed.

I had the opportunity to interview Peggy last fall. I managed to take the 10 minutes of her time that I requested and turn it into over a half hour... and I wish I had more!!! I've done many interviews over the years, but Peggy Seeger tops my list as one of the most intelligent, witty, eloquent, funny... I'm running out of terms! The evening before the interview I had my first opportunity to watch her on stage. I vouch for her banjo skills! I also never realized how personable she can be on stage. Perhaps because she lived in Great Britian for so many years, I don't think American audiences ever had the opportunity to really appreciate the talent of Peggy Seeger. Now that she is back "home", I hope she will continue to tour and more people will re-discover what a magnificent person and performer she is!
