Peggo Hodes

Peggo in Love ñ singer Peggo Hodes’ debut solo recording ñ is a striking collection of timeless love songs picked from the Great American Songbook. Peggo, whose previous outings include her work with award-winning childrenís music group Peggosus and folk duo Peggo and Paul (featuring her husband Paul Hodes), looked to her past for inspiration on Peggo in Love. “I first learned these songs with my grandfather, Henry Horstmann,” Peggo writes in her liner notes. “At all family reunions, he and his siblings would sing every song they ever knew. By the time I was old enough to stay up late with the raucous, singing adults, I had developed an abiding love for these old jazz standards.” Peggoís affinity for the material on In Love is palpable throughout the disc, from the mournful When I Fall in Love to the sultry La Vie en Rose. Peggo is accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Kent Allyn, guitarists Paul Hodes and David Tonkin, saxophonist Matt Langley, and percussionist John Faggiano.
