Folk legend, political activist and exile, sister of Pete and the subject of one of the most loved love-songs ever written.

Peggy Seegar joins Graeme Hill as they discuss her love song 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face', written for her by her lover Euan McColl. 

Her memoir in only 400 pages covers more than 80 years of her extraordinary life.

She speaks about her upbringing, how she became involved in the world of music, and love.

Music was always around.

Graeme plays the amazing audio of her love song, as Ms Seegar explains how her and Euan were drawn to each other.
