Songs of Courting and Complaint

Songs of Courting and Complaint

Peggy 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.
