Thread Name: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
I am a fourth generation Canadian but I carry a Scottish name and Gaelic was the mother tongue of both of my parents. Canada is polarized into English and French classifications and because of the language that I speak most fluently I am considered English-Canadian although I carry no English genes. In no way do I feel English and I am sure that I would be feeling much more at home in the Hebrides than I would in London. Being Scottish is as much a culture as a nationality and I understand from whence Ewan came!
