GUEST,Terry McDonald Three greatest Scottish cultural figures (108* d) RE: Three greatest Scottish cultural figures 25 Jul 07


Jim Carroll - no argument about that, especially about the ballads! It just seems to me that some people choose to identify with their parents' nationality rather than the one they've been born into and grown up with. My father was a sixth generation Newfoundlander but because he settled in England, married here and my brother and I were born here, we simply don't feel as if we're Newfoundlanders, let alone Canadian. Been there five times, but still feel totally English. MacColl's best known work, though, still seems to be his 'English' material which, as you say, is probably to be expected. By the way, did he ever live in Scotland?
