In conversation with Peggy Seeger

  • Peggy Seeger

    Peggy Seeger is one of folk music's most respected and influential musicians yet her life is the stuff of a rip-roaring blockbuster. Still performing at 82, Peggy talks about her remarkable life with vigour and humour.

    You’ll hear about Peggy’s colourful upbringing involving cameos from some of the great and the good of the folk music world - Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Alan Lomax, Libba Cotten et al, and her surreal adventures around the world of sexual intrigue, music and politics...and lots of all of it.

    Together with her husband Ewan MacColl, Peggy helped lay the foundations of the British folk revival, through the innovative Critics Group and the landmark BBC Radio Ballads programmes. As Ewan’s muse, she inspired one of the 20th century’s most popular love songs, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

    This event is followed by a book signing of Peggy’s recently published memoir, First Time Ever which received universal acclaim and made several end-of-year ‘Best of’ lists.
