RUFF is a musical tribute to the huge space opened in Peggy’s brain after surviving a stroke in January 2011 that allowed her more room to create new material. This new work is the next in a series of autobiographical solo work exploring issues of gender and age. Throughout, Shaw throws off the stigma of age and embraces the opportunity to create new work at 68, blaming the stroke for her behavior, with humor, wit and insight.
Written by Peggy Shaw & Lois Weaver Performed by Peggy Shaw
