Peggy Seeger and Calum MacColl – The First Farewell Tour

Friday 28th May 2021 - Starts 8pm

TICKET PRICE: £18 (incl. venue levy)

Please note: This show was originally scheduled for 27th May 2020. All tickets bought for then remain valid.

Making a very welcome return to Ropetackle on her ‘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. Join Peggy and her son Calum MacColl, an exceptional musician in his own right, for a glorious evening of up-close performance.  Expect to hear some of Peggy and Ewan MacColl’s most loved songs, readings from Peggy’s award-winning memoir ‘The First Time Ever’, plenty of audience participation and lots of relaxed family banter.

“Peggy may be folk royalty, but there’s nothing either reverent or nostalgic about this joyous and intimate performance” The Guardian 

“Glorious – Peggy is a commanding presence” The Times

“An effortlessly intimate affair” The Scotsman

“A memorable warm and charming evening of great music, family humour and grace.” Irish World
