GUEST,Hootenanny 2007 Ewan MacColl Bio - Class Act (715* d) RE: 2007 Ewan MacColl Bio - Class Act 23 Nov 19


Ians,

Thanks for all that most of which I am already aware of. I was just querying the date.

I saw Ewan & Peggy almost every week from around late 1956 / early 1957 until 1961 when they left the Ballads & Blues Club and I took over booking the performers and continued the same policy that the BBA had used since it's beginning when it grew out of the skiffle movement.

It was just prior to Ewan and Peggy leaving that Ewan decided to introduce his policy of British singers for British songs etc. Earlier he had been happy along with Peggy and Shirley Collins to record in Lomax's skiffle group using British and American songs albeit "arranged versions".

I agree with you that he wrote some good songs. I am not "taking sides".
