Thread Name: Who's Ewan MacColl?
Subject: RE: Who's Ewan MacColl?
Ewan MacColl's work on sea songs--whaling ballads etc. with A.L. Bert Lloyd on at least a dozen record labels is some of the most important work ever done. As Studs Terkel said when he introduced Ewan at the Newport Folk Festival in '59, "Here is a monumental figure in the world of folk music!"
