Flying Donkey presents Peggy Seeger
The First Farewell Tour – Peggy Seeger with Calum MacColl
Making a very welcome return to Sheffield on her ‘First Farewell Tour’, the charismatic Peggy Seeger – singer, songwriter, feminist, icon, Ewan MacColl’s partner and muse – is the undisputed queen of folk and political song. 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 some of Peggy and Ewan MacColl’s most loved songs, readings from Peggy’s award-winning memoir ‘The First Time Ever’, plenty of audience participation and lots of relaxed family banter.
