Faber Announces Peggy Seeger's Memoir Faber is delighted to announce that it has secured rights for
Peggy Seeger's First Time Ever: A Memoir
for publication in February 2018.
Peggy is one of folk music's most influential artists and songwriters, having spearheaded the 1960s folk revival alongside her late collaborator and partner, Ewan MacColl. As a founding member of the Critics Group, she helped nurture a generation of musicians. Her work on the BBC Radio Ballads went towards redefining documentary broadcasting. Many of her songs have become anthems for the women's movement, such as 'I'm Gonna Be an Engineer' and 'Carry Greenham Home'. And as Ewan's muse, she was the inspiration for one of the twentieth century's most popular love songs, 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face'. Peggy has released numerous albums, the most recent being last year's Everything Changes, which received universal critical praise, and whose 'Swim to the Star', co-written with her son Calum MacColl, won Best Original Song at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Editor Dave Watkins: 'Peggy has led, and continues to lead, an extraordinarily rich life, which she recounts in the most luminous and energised prose. Hers is a story of passion for music, for her loves, for living which lifts off the page. It is genuinely inspiring.' Peggy Seeger: 'At eighty-one, it's about time I wrote a memoir. Remembering who I think I was and reflecting on who I think I am has helped me forge signposts for the twenty years I think I still have. It's a chronological roller-coaster ride up, down and diagonal. I'm dizzy with the writing of it. Come along for the trip company always welcome.' - See more at:
