Peggy Seeger and Neill MacColl: First Farewell Tour
Making a very welcome visit to The Witham on the final leg of her rescheduled ‘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.

Expect to hear some of Peggy’s new songs from her hugely successful ‘First Farewell’ album, some traditional favourites, a few surprises, and plenty of relaxed family banter.
