This event has sold out but tickets are available for the earlier event, Ruth Crawford Seeger – ‘Dear Superwoman’. Christina McMaster performs some of Ruth Crawford Seeger’s fascinating piano music and explores her short but intensely creative life.
Peggy Seeger stands at the nexus of two musical dynasties: her mother was an avant garde composer and folk-song arranger of rare talent, Ruth Crawford Seeger. Both her brother, Pete, and husband, Ewan McColl, were legends of the folk revival in their respective countries. Peggy has lived an extraordinarily rich life as a musician, songwriter and activist, with 23 solo albums to her name. In this special event, she is joined by her sons and pianist Christina McMaster, to sing the songs of her early life, and to reflect on the musical influence of her mother, who died so young.
