Reviews


"This biography is at its best in evoking what it must have felt like to be Peggy Seeger, developing a political, feminist, consciousness while realizing her own loving and artistic self within a formidable family and political community. Recommended."--Choice

"Freedman succeeds through prose as approachable and entertaining as Seeger's lyrics and informal, intimate performance style. . . . Freedman skillfully connects and contrasts Seeger's development as an artist with the practices of her parents and siblings, and also with a wide array of political and cultural movements."--Journal of Folklore Research

"Her account will be welcomed by Seeger's perennial fan base while providing a fair, thoughtful introduction to new admirers."--Bookreporter



"Freedman illuminates Seeger's life and career, creating a powerful, in-depth portrait of the woman, artist, activist, and champion of the folk music genre. . . . A must."--Library Journal
"An elaborately detailed investigation of Seeger's enduring musical legacy."--Booklist

"Jean R. Freedman's thoroughly researched book is the definitive biography--a masterpiece."--FolkWorks
