Thread Name: Who's Ewan MacColl?
Subject: RE: Who's Ewan MacColl?
Bob Blair sang it at Kelso "Both Sides the Tweed Festival" last October, and got the tears rolling down my face. We called our son Ewan - after Ewan McColl too (even if a few ignorant people said "Ewan who?" - or from my Canadian sister-in-law "EEE-Wann - what sort of a name's that?") As we've lived in Scotland since "our Ewan" was 3 years old (now 17) I'd say it's a very good name to have, even if 5 of your classmates have the same one! Tattie B
