Peggy Seeger, sister of Pete and Mike and daughter of composer Ruth Crawford and folklorist Charles Seeger, has been singing traditional music for over half-a-century and writing songs for most of her life. In 1959 she settled in England with the Scots singer/writer Ewan MacColl, who celebrated their union by writing 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.' With 14 solo albums to her credit and countless joint albums, she has spent the last two years drawing together two comprehensive songbooks: The Essential Ewan MacColl Songboook and The Peggy Seeger Songbook, Warts and All. All but four of the songs on An Odd Collection are previously unrecorded and recently written.
