GUEST,Ewan McVicar Folklore: The CND, who led, who followed ? (30) RE: Folklore: The CND, who led, who followed ? 02 Sep 09


I was never at the Holy Loch.
I got invited to be part of the 1990s Eskimos Glasgow concert because I and Ian Davison were part of the Scottish CND Buskers, who remade Eskimos songs in the 1980s. As Jim says, several singers on that stage had no or little connection with the marches. Some of them sang or joined in with the songs in folk clubs.
Ian Davison suggests there should be a term for those people who only think they were arrested at the Holy loch or Faslane, or whosaw 'Mandela Dance In The Square'.
I've suggested to Jim that there should be a category of 'Friends of the Eskimos' for those like Gordeanna MacCulloch and Ukes Against Nukes who actively supported the anti-bomb struggle, so showed solidarity with the Eskimo ideal, best expressed in Morris Blythman's song The Eskimo Republic.
