Peggy Watson is a unique musician. She is recognized as one of San Diego's leading acoustic singer/songwriters but has been embraced by the jazz and pop world as well. With a wide vocal range, her smooth, emotional voice effortlessly moves between contemporary folk stylings, smokey jazz, or powerful pop ballads. She is a fine songwriter/guitarist who moves her audience from tears to laughter with her relevant and touching songs.
While Peggy has performed in a wide variety of venues, including major clubs, coffeehouses, house concerts, and industry showcases, she has also used her talents to support many community, nationwide, and international efforts. Her concerts have helped raise thousands of dollars for AIDS organizations, environmental issues, medical aid projects, women's health, and education fundraisers.
Peggy Watson is a versatile, accessible performer who works hard at her craft. San Diego's Beach News has described Watson as "an on and off-stage gem; her friendly demeanor, intelligent lyrics, and wide vocal range and expressive style, have won her a strong following among local folk and jazz fans."

With a wide vocal range, her smooth, emotional voice effortlessly moves between contemporary folk stylings, smokey jazz, or powerful pop ballads.
It would be easy to compare her voice to other folk icons like Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, but no one can sing like Peggy Watson. Unabashedly timeless, she has found the vein of gold in her own instrument, and we all fall back dazzled.
Again and again Watson finds a way, with a turn of phrase or a melody, to encapsulate and convey the mysterious center of things where categories and definitions slip away.
