Thread Name: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
Subject: RE: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
I understand there is a possibly that some songs which Ewan MacColl 'collected' were in fact written by him. This does give a false view of the tradition, and previous collectors who did this are now regarded as forgers, I believe.
(PS why can trolls never spell? Or are they too keen to send, and just mistype words)
