Peggy ranges from folksy to blues with equal ease, alone or harmonizing with others. Believing there needs to be a female role added to the record of Adirondack history, She co-authored “Breaking Trail: Remarkable Women in the Adirondacks” with Sandra Weber. Peggy celebrates, through song and story, the comical, amazing and poignant experiences of Adirondack women as the unsung heroes. Peggy’s most recent solo recording is an anthology of her ballads of North Country women titled Adirondack Woman. To inform her understanding of women’s issues and historical context, Peggy returned to college and received a BS in Women’s Studies and a Master’s degree in American and Women’s History.
