Who She Really Is.....

When she's not sailing in the summer, or working with grant applications, Peg sings sea shanties with her children, goofy camps songs with the Brownie troop, and original rock with her bassist husband in the Boston-area band BoneDance. The band is named for the George Bernard Shaw quote: "If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance."
