Book Now

JuneFest and Riverbank Arts Centre present:  

Charismatic Peggy Seeger – singer, songwriter, feminist, icon, Ewan MacColl’s partner and muse – is the undisputed queen of folk and political song.

On this ‘First Farewell to Ireland’ tour, join Peggy and her son Calum MacColl, an exceptional musician in his own right, for a glorious evening of up-close performance.

Expect to hear a mixture of new and traditional songs from Peggy’s huge repertoire, plus some of her and Ewan MacColl’s most loved songs, interspersed with readings from Peggy’s award-winning memoir ‘The First Time Ever’.  There will of course be plenty of audience participation and lots of relaxed family banter.

“A memorable warm and charming evening of great music, family humour and grace.” Irish World

“Peggy may be folk royalty, but there’s nothing either reverent or nostalgic about this joyous and intimate performance” The Guardian 

“Glorious – Peggy is a commanding presence” The Times

“An effortlessly intimate affair” The Scotsman
