Peggy Seeger & Calum MacColl

Tickets: £7.50 - £16.00

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

A multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, 5-string banjo, autoharp, English concertina and Appalachian dulcimer), she is lauded for her feminist and political songs. She has made 25 solo recordings and participated in over a hundred more.

As Ewan MacColl’s partner and muse, she was the inspiration for MacColl’s classic The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (the title of her much-praised recent memoir) yet this is a woman who has consistently followed her own path with passion and vigour.

Performing with her son Calum MacColl, this is a gloriously intimate up-close performance by two world class musicians.  Expect to hear some of Peggy’s new songs from her hugely successful ‘First Farewell’ album, some old favourites, a few surprises, and plenty of relaxed family banter.

“Peggy Seeger may be folk royalty … but there’s still plenty of the mischievous reprobate – not to mention the untamed rebel – about her.” The Guardian

“Glorious – Peggy is a commanding presence.” – The Times

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
