Thread Name: The Big Issue: Peggy Seeger
Subject: RE: The Big Issue: Peggy Seeger
I never usually take a magazine. Just give a couple of quid or so. this is the Christmas issue. £2.50 cover price. So I gave the lady a five.

Very very interesting article.

i always thought of the seegers as a wealthy family - as they had servants like Liba Cotton. Apparently they were in debt a lot, which sort of explains how the Seeger/ MacColl managed their microbusiness of selling albums, magazines, doing gigs, playwrighting, songwriting with such attention to detail. I guess we all end up determined not to make our parents mistakes.
