James Henry Miller (25 January 1915 – 22 October 1989), better known by his stage name Ewan MacColl, was an English folk singer, songwriter, communist, labour activist, actor, poet, playwright, and record producer. He was thrice married: to theatre director Joan Littlewood, to Jean Newlove, with whom he had two children including the singer/songwriter Kirsty MacColl, and to American folksinger Peggy Seeger, with whom he had three children, Kitty, Calum and Niall. He collaborated with Littlewood in the theatre, and with Seeger in folk music.
