GUEST,ollaimh The Song Carriers - Ewan MacColl (1968) (53* d) RE: The Song Carriers - Ewan MacColl (1968) 18 Nov 14


McColl wrote good songs and was a passable singer but his "fantasies" were pure british imperialism. any one can be a scotts gael by changing his name, screw the real ones, no one listens to them anyway and no one lets them come around.

folk music is unfortunately full of that kind of cultural appropriation. at least McColl was working class. most of the fakers are refugees from the upper classes, looking for an easy career.
