Peggy Seeger

 

continued

How wonderful it must be for Seeger to look back on fifty years of concerts, twenty solo albums, 100 joint recordings with other singers, and 200 original songs — not to mention kids and grandkids, world travels, and a life of creative social activism. How important it is to keep these songs alive and remembered, resung and interpreted. They are the wellspring from which so many other songs came, and it's truly a gift to be able to hear them again, ungussied, unadulterated, and still so fresh.

The record in my left hand also taught me math. Seriously. To this day, when my multiplication tables elude me, I call on Peggy Seeger and her siblings to remind me:

Five times five is twenty-five,
Five times six is thirty.
Five times seven is thirty-five
Five times eight is forty.


I'd go play it right now, except that I don't have a record player.

Peggy Seeger plays the Ark on Sunday, March 26.
