Peggy

Seeger and Family - ‘The First Time Ever’ UK Concert Tour

“Each first time ever is the last time that that first time ever will happen. The first time I die will be the last time I live. I was born joyful. This is the first and last time I will write my life.” Peggy Seeger, from ‘The First Time Ever: A Memoir

To coincide with the publication of her memoir (Faber & Faber, Oct 5th) and accompanying CD, singer songwriter and feminist icon Peggy Seeger will take to the road this autumn for a 20-date UK concert and literary festival tour. At 82 she is the undisputed queen of folk and political song with a charisma that shines as brightly as ever.

Concerts will feature Peggy and family members performing her and Ewan MacColl’s most treasured songs from a career spanning over 60 years interspersed with readings from her memoir and plenty of whip-smart banter.

Peggy has always had the ability to take an audience from laughter to tears and back again in the space of a few songs. Her memoir achieves the same in just a few paragraphs. Put the two together and it’s guaranteed to be a memorable night.

The Seeger MacColl family are one of folk music’s most loved dynasties. Singer, songwriter and feminist icon Peggy Seeger performs with Neill and Calum, her sons with Ewan MacColl. Join these three exceptional musicians for a gloriously relaxed evening of great music and witty family banter. Expect to hear songs of love, politics and storytelling, including some from Peggy’s award-winning latest album alongside Ewan MacColl’s best loved songs. This is an intimate evening with a remarkable family that will linger long in the memory.
