Peggy Seeger has enjoyed a long career as a singer, songwriter, and composer on both sides of the ocean and plays guitar, autoharp, banjo, keyboards, and concertina. Half-sister to Pete Seeger and partner of the late Ewan MacColl, she was born into a musical family of ethnomusicologists and composers. With Ewan, she was part of the early folk revival in England , collecting, recording, performing and joining with other singers to promote traditional folk music. The Ballad of Springhill is one of her best-known songs.
“I have a reputation for being an activist, a progressive, an advocate, a mover-and-shaker, a leftwinger, a feminist, a singer of songs which try to move humanity on a little down the road towards that time when our descendants will look back upon us as Neanderthals, dinosaurs, blind hopefuls groping our way towards the future.” Peggy Seeger
