The McEwens'country seat was Marchmont Estates situated about eight miles north and a million In Berwickshire, as Bruce notes. Their contribution to folk music was not insignificant. I particularly like their tune for Child 215 - Willie's Fair - on Folkways FW 6927, which, as I recall they said came from their mother.
