Peggy is a folk singer, songwriter and activist who wrote Carry Greenham Home. Along with other musicians, she sang to the march that was coming through from Wales to Greenham in September 1981. She later joined them at Greenham Common and recalls journalists, donations and getting pissed-off with lounging men! Peggy speaks of how women don’t have a written history and how we have to celebrate the power of a lot of women together. She remembers women improvising singing collectively to dumfound police, showing skill in keeping the peace where men could not and Rebecca Johnson signing her nightmare of nuclear war.

Peggy was interviewed by Rebecca Mordan in 2019.
