A Conversation with Peggy Seeger



Date: Monday, March 21,2011

Time: 11:30 AM

Where: Louis J. von der Mehden Recital Hall

To celebrate National Women’s History Month, the University Libraries’ Diversity Advisory Team is sponsoring a program with Peggy Seeger, a member of America’s foremost folk music families. She is considered to be one of North America’s finest revival singers of traditional songs and has recorded over 22 solo discs. In addition to composing and singing her own songs, Ms. Seeger plays 5-string banjo, guitar, Appalachian dulcimer, autoharp, English concertina, and piano.

This workshop will explore the images and roles of women in traditional Anglo-American songs dating from the 17th century onward. Ms. Seeger will delight us with a mix of singing and conversation and will welcome questions from the audience during and after this event. The workshop is open to everyone and runs over the course of two hours.  We encourage you to come for all or part of the program as your schedules allow. The event will be followed by a reception.
