Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
"on more than one occaision I've heard Colin Irwin repeat the myth that MacColl was born in Auchterader"
In farness to Colin Irwin Dave, the misinformation appeared on at least one set of sleeve-notes - written by Ken Goldstein - I have no idea whether Ewan gave him tht information or whether it was an assumption.
His mother told me once "Oor Jimmy was born in England, but he's every bit as Scots as I am - and prood of it"
