Ewan McVicar was Gavin Paterson's guest on Celtic Music Radio earlier this week.
Here's the playlist, and a link to where you can hear it again for the next 30 days.
Playlist for Ballads & Balladeers with Gavin Paterson, Tuesday 19 September 2017.
Some weeks ago I spent the afternoon talking with Ewan McVicar about his life and music. Ewan himself chose the music we would discuss and play and all of it reflects a particular time or event in his life. An eclectic mix of sounds to match an eclectic life.
A founder member of the first public folk club in Glasgow, he wrote a chart hit in 1960 but it's not in the Guinness Book - Ewan tells why, he lived and worked in both Africa and the USA in the 60s. Activist, educator and song writer. And more.
And I have more stories and songs that I couldn't squeeze into two hours. I'll play them, along with some other 'out-takes' on a later date.

Thanks for the tip, Bruce. Interesting stories and fine songs.
And I do love the voice of Fiona Hunter. When I saw her name in the playlist I just had to listen to this programme.
