I had the great pleasure of hearing Peggy Seeger play a ‘gig’ in Dublin, for a local Farmers and Fish Market, on Hallow e’en night. She said she’d been up since 5.30am that morning and driven up through Ireland to the capital. She sang “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” written for her by Ewan Mc Coll. She also showed her activist spirit is still alive and well with songs about Iraq soldiers, pro-choice and mother earth.
She has amazing energy for a seventy-four year old and is clearly from the vanguard of the folk scene that Bob Dylan entered all those years ago.
