Subject: RE: The Big Issue: Peggy Seeger
Peggy and Ewan were a synchronised team dependent on one another for different things
I had twenty years to come to that conclusion, including a short period of living with them
To see them spark off one another in Critics Group meetings was a joy to watch - particularly when she took the piss out of him for his tendency to exaggerate
Their work together produced some of teh finest examples of traditional singing, particularly of thee Ballads - go listen to the American-British ballad swapping in The Long Harvest or the magnificent Blood and Roses series
