New Matt McGinn website

To mark ten great years of Linlithgow concerts 'Keeping Matt McGinn Singing' [this year on 5th March,. see Linlithgow Folk Festival website] I have trawled the Internet and made links to the McGinn Family website [101 songs] and the 60+ You Tube vidoes of Matt and images. I have also added material from two 1960s Matt songbooks, the excellent Wikipedia article on him, and very interesting articles from the 1967 special McGinn issue of Chapbook magazine.
Find it all at

Well, since I can't even spell my own name correctly it will be no surprise that I still struggle to make blue clickies. Trying again now.

Close, Ewan, but no cigar (but I fixed it for you).
The link should look like this:
    <a href="http://www.keepingmattmcginnsinging.webs.com/">New McGinn website</a>
Close, very close - but you left out the http://

But the Website is terrific.

Hi Ewan,
I assume you are aware of the xcellent tribute concert McGinn of the Calton, by Stramash.

Oy oy - in some future incarnation I will be blue clicky proficient!
Thanks, Joe.
People should know of Stramash concert. I wonder if the cassette they did of Matt's songs is on CD nowadays?

Short answer to your question, Ewan -- 'McGinn of the Calton' is not on CD.

Did Matt ever record songs written by anyone other than himself?
