TheSnail 2007 Ewan MacColl Bio - Class Act (561* d) RE: New Ewan MacColl Biography 13 Feb 18

Some of you might start by responding to what I have put up about Ewan rather than digging up more urban myths

I understood this thread was about 'Class Act: The Political and Cultural Life of Ewan MacColl' by Ben Harker not about your remniscences. Lot's of people have said things about MacColl. What makes your opinions more important?

"I used to think that Traditional song would never die as a performed art; now I am not too sure
It seems that the folk clubs have fallen into the hands of people who neither understand nor like folk song"

And you still don't understand why some people got pissed off with him?

(Actually, I quoted more context than your quote in red.)
