Along with other left-leaning singers such as Paul Robeson during the McCarthy era she had her US passport withdrawn and finally settled in Britain. There she playied a part in the English folk music revival. As such Seeger was a leader in the introduction of the concertina in English fol. While not the only concertina player, her "musical skill and proselytizing zeal ..." was a major force in spreading the gospel of concertina playing in the revival.
