Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 1:30pm Central Time — Peggy Seeger: Live at Cecil Sharp House in England

Peggy Seeger - singer, songwriter, feminist, icon, Ewan MacColl's partner and muse - is the undisputed queen of Folk and political song. Celebrating the release of her remarkable new album, "First Farewell", Peggy Seeger performs her very first live gig since the pandemic.

Alongside her son Calum MacColl, Peggy makes a welcome return to Cecil Sharp House - the iconic home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Described by The Times as 'the spiritual home of English traditional music', this special building has been devoted to folk music and dance from the day it opened 91 years ago. It feels like folk has permeated the actual fabric of the building.
