Having recently released her 22nd solo album “Everything Changes”, Peggy Seeger remains one of the strongest characters in folk music. She built her reputation with evocative renditions of traditional folk songs and writing her own songs of activism with her husband, the late Ewan MacColl and continues to write and perform with the same emotion, whit and fire at the age of 80.
She was an influential feminist figure in a folk scene which is now remembered as a golden era in the revival of folk music, the same era that saw artists like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Donovan all produce their greatest works. Despite her connection to the roots of folk composition, she isn’t afraid to innovate and experiment on her latest work.
Her latest album has received rave reviews, including a 5 star appraisal from The Guardian, who said “…here she explores new, pained and personal territory, and does so with delicacy and soul”, adding that “Everything Changes and the agonised We Watch You Slip Away are among the finest new songs I have heard his year”.
She’s joined on stage at this special show by her and Ewan’s sons Neill and Callum MacColl, both talented musicians themselves. Given her current fine form and rich folk history with strong family ties, this show is not to be missed.
