Thread Name: Ewan MacColl ...Folk Friend Or Foe?
Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl ...Folk Friend Or Foe?
the point of what I was saying that much of this material is audience/artist specific.
Maybe the original artist - knew a local fact, or personality, or even a way of phrasing that would bowl over his audience.
Ewan Macoll had his set of co--ordinates to navigate and the young singers who follow after will have theirs.
I'm obviously not communicating. I've been slung out and studiously ignored at many a traddy gathering of kindred spirits and fisherman's smocks. Its not a new experience.
