Thread Name: New book - Legacies of Ewan MacColl
Subject: RE: New book - Legacies of Ewan MacColl
The book arrived yesterday, si Haven't had time to delve into it. However, I was glad to see Doc Rowe listed as a contributor for the use of some of his photographs. Also that there is a chapter in there about MacColl's singing style. Considering the importance he placed on style and interpretation, it is surprising that we have had to wait until now for a detailed analysis.
However, photograph No 1, which seems not to be one of Doc's own, has the tagline "Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger collecting in the early 1960s". It shows Ewan and Peggy in a pub, talking to an old bloke in a cloth cap and muffler. Unfortunately his face is obscured and I can't for the life of me think who he could be.
Does anyone know?
