Peggy Seeger and Family

Peggy Seeger is a unique artist who has carved a special place in the folk pantheon of both the UK and the USA. Now in her late 80s, her light
burns as brightly as ever. A multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, 5-string banjo, autoharp, English concertina and Appalachian dulcimer), she is lauded for her feminist and political songs and her co-creation of The Radio Ballads.
She has made 24 solo recordings and participated in over a hundred more. As Ewan MacColl’s partner and muse, she was the inspiration for MacColl’s classic ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’. Her 2023 reworking of this song has become a defining performance.
