Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Can't see where your 'grue' comes from, Guest. Perfectly serviceable General Purpose Scots accent IMO. The vocal mannerisms inherent in MacColl's singing, to be sure, do not appeal to everyone, tho didn't worry me; but they were present whatever accent he adopted. I suspect they, rather than the accent itself, are what you are reacting so negatively & 'gruesomely' to.
