Temple Cowley Pool

Well, the Oxford City Council think they have us beat. They’ve demolished Temple Cowley Pools building, but as usual our team are still at it, challenging alternative facts and working to get back what's been lost. Bulldogs not only nipping at the council’s heels but teeth sunk into their trousers. Role models for what’s coming up in world politics. Keep an eye on this space.

Everything Changes

Peggy-Seeger-Everything-Changes.jpg

"Her singing is as highly charged as ever and her writing as pointed and witty."
English Dance & Song Winter 2014

"...a quietly compelling album of songs that took a lifetime to be able to write and sing. A most eloquent and rich album."
Sing Out

"This album is a revelation. Throughout her lengthy career, Peggy Seeger has proved that she is a thoughtful songwriter with an easygoing voice that offsets her often angry lyrics, but here she explores new, pained and personal territory, and does so with delicacy and soul. Listening to her relaxed, often acrobatic vocals, it's hard to believe she's 79."

Robin Denselow, The Guardian (UK)


"In every way, shape and form, this is a remarkable album. It's an album which makes some stern demands on you.  But that's nothing to the demands it makes on Seeger herself.  The fact that she meets them all with such relish, confidence and conviction make it very special."
Colin Irwin, fRoots


"Peggy Seeger is a monumental figure in folk and modern music but this proves that she is still vibrant and relevant.  This is definitely Peggy Seeger at her best."
Music-News.com 4 stars

"This stirring album brims with a radical energy that can only illuminate."
New Internationalist

"A revelation folk legend Peggy Seeger returns to form, her limber vocals and experimental approach enhancing some of the finest new songs I have heard this year.
"
The Guardian  5 stars

"A remarkably fresh and dynamic affair. Hushed, listening, spacious, wise and witty."
Nick Coleman, Independent on Sunday  4 stars

"(An) admirable album...a genuine emotional catch."
Financial Times 4 stars

Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger 1919-2014

My beloved brother Pete died on January 27, 2014. He leaves a prodigious body of work for us to enjoy, a legacy the enormity of which will continue to grow. As for me, I have lost the last person who has known me from birth and who has always been there for me. I cannot express how heavy losing Pete lies with me. My thanks to all for your kind and thoughtful condolences. Peggy

Peggy Seeger - Folk Singer, Songmaker, Activist

"This sparky woman has done so much, lived so much, crammed so much in. Most of all,
she has informed our appreciation of British and North American folk music, like very, very
few people have. Then factor in her multiple roles in illuminating the folk, political song and feminist scenes and how her songs have enriched the folk idiom, and you have somebody
worth getting amazed about."  - Ken Hunt / fRoots
