Peggy is Pete Seeger’s half-sister and Ruth Crawford Seeger’s daughter; her partner was English songwriter Ewan MacColl, who wrote First Time Ever I Saw Your Face for her. She is known for her renditions of Anglo-American folksongs and for her activist songwriting. Her best-known pieces are Gonna Be An Engineer and The Ballad of Springhill, which latter is rapidly becoming regarded as a traditional song. She tours extensively in the UK as a solo artist, singing and giving workshops. She has made 22 solo recordings and participated in over a hundred recordings with other artists.
