Thread Name: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Ewan had Scots parents - gave him the best of both worlds (if you can count Salford as a world!)
I had Irish parents - gave me the best of both worlds, but never sure of which side of the fence I should be.
Still - it's an excuse to get in a bit of corpse-kicking (he died in 1989 you know!!)
Pity he was such a great singer and one of those who opened up all this beautifil music for us - then you could really have given his corpes a real kicking.
