Peggy Seeger is the undisputed queen of folk song. Following the publication of her award winning memoir ‘First Time Ever’, the legendary singer and activist will be In Conversation with Dr Jill Rapoport.  They will be discussing her remarkable life at the forefront of the British Folk Revival, her roots at the heart of American folk music and her role as partner and muse to Ewan MacColl. Expect hair-raising tales told with sparkly-eyed charm and razor-sharp wit, impromptu singing, a smattering of politics and some audience participation.  Peggy will be signing copies of her book and CDs after the event.
