Event description
International Treasure Peggy Seeger's First Farewell Tour

About this event

Peggy Seeger, the undisputed queen of folk & political song, comes to our stage as part of her 2022 FIRST FAREWELL tour.

She’ll perform with her son Calum MacColl, a gifted professional musician in his own right and producer of many of her albums, including ‘First Farewell’.

Peggy says: “First Farewell is an odd title for a CD or a tour, but it looks both forward and back as I have tried to do in my life. I have toured all over the globe since I was twenty and it is always a delight, a new adventure. I am an activist, an advocate, a left-winger, an eco-feminist, a singer of traditional and topical songs, trying to speak in my own way for my own time. This may be the last time, but then again it may not ….”

First Farewell is Mojo Magazine’s #1 Folk Album of the Year. Christened by the Guardian as ‘Folk’s First Lady’ and by the Sunday Times as ‘Folk’s Matriarch’, Peggy is now in her mid 80s with 26 solo albums (and over 100 collaborative albums) under her belt. Few artists (and even fewer female artists) can claim such an impressive catalogue of work. Her modesty would prevent her from calling herself a national treasure, but she embodies the term in cultural significance not only for her song-writing and musicianship but also in her refusal to compromise standards or beliefs.

Peggy is the recipient of multiple awards, including the Association of Independent Music (AIM) Women in Music ‘Most Inspirational Artist’, Folk Alliance International’s ‘Lifetime Achievement’ and BBC Radio 2’s Folk Awards ‘Song of the Year’.

“Seeger is setting standards, digging deep into her own culture, showing the way. She’s continuing to build her own musical ecosystem, and it’s magical. Absolutely magical.” Uncut Magazine

“Peggy Seeger can inspire us all — young and old — to greater things.” Morning Star
