CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Folk singer Peggy Seeger will play the Culture Center Theater Sunday March 25.
Tickets for the show are on sale now.
The 76-year-old half-sister of folk icon Pete Seeger, has had a long and distinguished musical career, releasing several dozen albums, including more than 20 solo records as well as records with her husband, U.K. folk singer Ewan MacColl, and her brother, Mike Seeger.
Seeger has written and sung about work, poverty and war, but is best known for her songs about women's issues. She also is the inspiration for MacColl's song, "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face," which became a folk standard and was a hit in 1972 for Roberta Flack.
Seeger lived in the U.K. and abroad for decades before returning to the U.S. after MacColl's death in 1989. In 2010, she returned to the U.K. to be nearer to her children.
The Culture Center show is part of Seeger's final U.S. Tour.
Tickets are $20 and are available online at www.mountainstage.org or by calling 800-594-TIXX. They may also be purchased at the Fret-n-Fiddle in St. Albans or Ellen's Ice Cream in Charleston.
