Oral History Information
Peggy Sexton and her husband, Bob, formed Tactus Press to publish books on early percussion. Peggy’s passion for research and the social history surrounding the development of musical instruments added a captivating aspect to their publications. Their first book was “Castanuelas Ole! A book about Castanets.” Bob created the graphic designs and layout of the books. Peggy wrote under the name “Taboust”, remarking that if musical scholars did not know who wrote the book, they were forced to read it before they judged its content and research. Bob passed away in 2000 and Peggy passed in July 2013. Their contributions to music remain with us.
