Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl - coward or traitor?
hi this MaColl bloke was he a folk singer then?
The name rings a bell somewhere.
It woud be very unusual for a Scott to be something like a barrack room lawyer wouldnt it?
I never yet met a scot who was well educated,witty,inteligent,opinionated or bolshy.
On a serious note is he the one who sort of decided to dictate who could play or sing what sort of songs in folk clubs?
Is all before my time but does appear to be all a bit tinged with the middle class 'fifties wat of life you know rich man in his castle ,poor man at his gate.
He made the jocks all ginger and taught them how to hate.
