Thread Name: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
no its Scottish because Ewan wanted to be a Scot. And adopted a Scottish persona.
Just like James Connolly is an Irish hero.
Cliff Richard is an English popstar.
Django Rheinhardt is a French icon summoning up images of the left bank etc.
Hitler is a German villain.
Billy the Kid is a western outlaw.
Its not what life hands you, its what you do with it.
