Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Can't see how "Shoals of Herring" could be called a Scottish song, (even tho' the Corries recorded it) when the locations are YARMOUTH, CROMER, etc!

Because North Sea fisherfolk didn't stay within national boundaries any more than their work did.

Would you call "Twa Recruitin Sairgents" a Spanish song because it mentions Gibraltar?
