Tune into Peggy Seeger – In her Prime on BBC Radio 4 next Tuesday 19 October at 1.30pm to hear her talking to Charles Parker’s daughter, Sara about her life and what she calls her ‘song-making’ .
Peggy, now 75, has returned this year to live in Britain to be near her extended family and to explore new creative avenues. In this intimate portrait, she talks about loss and memories, and the strength she has gained from her relationships and the music which has been part of her life since she was a child. Her mother was avant-garde composer and pianist Ruth Crawford Seeger and her father, the pioneering folk music scholar Charles Seeger.
A Falling Tree Production, Peggy Seeger – In her Prime is produced by Prix Italia and Sony award-winning programme maker Alan Hall. More info here.
