Peggy Seeger Songs of Courting and Complaint (1955) CD
"This item is part of the Folkways (Cook, or Paredon, or Monitor) archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included."
Seeger's honest, unadorned voice and Clark Weissman's deft guitar
accompaniment grace this selection of ballads whose characters lament
the trials of courting and the tribulations of ill-fated marriage.
Seeger's liner notes include a short essay by her father, renowned
musicologist Charles Seeger.
