Thread Name: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
Subject: RE: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
Thanks for the help. Just to clarify, I think my title might have been a bit misleading. I was really looking for a quote, preferably from the horse's mouth, that explained MacColl's decision to compose songs in the folk vernacular as opposed to doing what most other people were doing and just singing 'traditional' songs.
