She's been the backing singer for her husband Neil for more than three decades and now Pegi Young is front and center with her brand new release, 'Foul Deeds' currently in stores. She'll also be front and center this coming Monday evening in performance at Jammin Java as opener for Mr. Bert Jansch.
And, as you might have guessed from the graphic up there, we've got a pair of tickets for Monday night's show to put your hands and the new CD/DVD release for your mailbox. (I know - but there's no vinyl on this one!)
"Foul Deeds seemed like a good album title, because this record definitely has its share of dark themes... divorce, debauchery, disillusionment and despair," Pegi Young says of her second album and first for Vapor Records. "But I'm not trying to be a bummer. I'm just trying to tell some stories and make music that I can get behind."
"I don't write happy songs, and the songs I'm attracted to tend to be kind of melancholy," Young observes. "I don't really know why that is, but that's just how they come to me, and I have to let 'em come on through."
Let us know why you should be chosen for the pair of tickets to see Pegi next Monday night in the comments to this post and the most convincing of the bunch will take home the tickets for the show and a find a copy of the brand new 'Foul Deeds' in his or her mailbox.
We'll close this one on Monday (12/13) at 9AM to give you plenty of time to conjure up your response—and remember to leave us a contact email address with your entry!
