“Pretty Saro ” from the album Songs of Love and Politics by Peggy Seeger (SFW40048)

Our featured download from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings is “Pretty Saro,” performed by Peggy Seeger. A dominant figure in the folk song movement in the U.S. and England for more than 35 years, Peggy personally selected these traditional and original songs focused primarily on the themes of love and politics. Songs include “Freight Train,” “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” and “Gonna Be An Engineer.”

“21 tracks display the variety of Peggy’s repertoire, her range of styles, love of tradition and innovative songwriting prowess.” — Homespun Tapes
