FreddyHeadey Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? (324* d) RE: Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? 20 Mar 19


"Just what folk song does Ewan McColl's "Dirty Old Town" sound like?"
Ewan adapted the tune from Isla Cameron's 'Waters of Tyne' - the two were working together on the play the song was written for when it was composed
MacColl's technique was to choose a tune and spend hours humming it through, making changes until he was satisfied with it.
