Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
baz, Ewan sang skiffle too?so why should he be think skiffle was watery pap. From what I can make out, he was not against skiffle, but believed that the traditional music of the british isles should be encouraged and promoted, he did point out to Lisa Turner when she sang an american song at the club he was involved in, that the club had a policy which was:singers should sing songs from their own tradition.
Ewan was only one of the several people who decided this policy.
was Tom Paley one of the organisers? nobody rails against Tom, I mean he is a lovely guy, but it seems EWAN takes all the flack.
