He may have sounded Scottish on some recordings but Ewan MacColl was born in Salford, Manchester (and his real name was Jimmy Miller).
So does he still qualify?
My vote goes to the Fisher family - all of them.

Giok, as well as Little Robyn, maybe never heard recordings by Ewan MacColl of Scots traditional songs, such as the ones he made for Topic, among which The Jacobite Rebellion; for Folkways (the three with the Child Ballads; Scottish Popular Songs; Bothy Ballads of Scotland, etc); for Tradition (Classic Scots Ballads), for Argo (the 10 Lps of The Long Harvest, with many Scots ballads), and many, many more. I think maybe they know Ewan MacColl for his own compositions, or for recordings with English Folk Songs, for example The Manchester Angel, but not for recordings of Scots songs, because I just can't understand their scornful comments about Ewan MacColl as a Scots balladeer. For sure, Archie Fisher and Dick Gaughan wouldn't agree with them. Roberto

I have heard Ewan MacColl's Scottish recordings and really love them, but the fact that he was born in England, is not a Scot, that is what I am questioning. Can you be Scots by adoption? Does that make Eric Bogle Australian by adoption? And if so, does he still qualify?
Or does simply being a singer of Scottish songs put you in the running for this award?

I have heard Ewan McColl's Scottish stuff, I have his books, and I named my son Ewan in his honour, so I'm not exactly anti him, just his inclusion as a Scottish/Scots Balladeer. He was a very complex character, and I find his need to be accepted as a Scot under an assumed name, as opposed to using his own equally Scottish, birth name curious. It should be possible to establish ones credentials through ones talent, and he undoubtedly had plenty of that. Anyway I digress, for my way of thinking, the term Scots balladeer in this instance, should mean native born.

*sigh*...another silly popularity poll, with no categories or distinctions. These are usually 'won' by the most famous or the current 'hot' recording artist, which tells you nothing.

Does "balladeer" = "singer"? Putting Ed Miller and Andy Stewart and Jeanie Robertson in the same list is like comparing beer & wine & whisky and voting on "best alcoholic drink"...all can be good, but they are simply too different.

Subject: RE: vote for Best Scottish Balladeer
From: Abby Sale
Date: 02 Apr 03 - 01:53 PM

There are a huge number of superb Scottish ballad-singers (or do you just mean "singer?" I think 'balladeer' could mean either. The tradition is remarkable.   Re MacColl, I strongly recommend a visit to the wonderful comments Gaughan makes in his "Links in the Chain section: Clicky. Actually, Gaughan (and you must see him at the top of this "best" topic) has wonderful comments about a bunch of "best singers" there. And he ought to know. You could add not only Jeanie and her daughter and son but many of her kith & kin - Higgins, Stewart.

I was raised on MacColl and have over 60 of his records but hearing the 'gentle' singers like Enoch Kent, Gaughan, Norman Kennedy raised it to a new height for me.

I find I have no favorite - I might prefer one singer on one song and another on another song. I think it's a big mistake to suggest a possible favorite. Six or ten votes for a Hall of Fame, maybe. A favorite is absurdly limiting. How about Gaelic singers? Bothy singers? The styles vary too much to restrict to a single person.

But I voted anyway. For Ann Neilson (erstwhile of 'Stramash'). Based, sadly, on hearing only a single song, "The Banks o Skene" on one CD, Folk Songs of North-East Scotland. It's an utter knockout of a rendition (and a CD full of superb ballad singing.) I'd love to hear more of her.
