GUEST,Hootenanny 2007 Ewan MacColl Bio - Class Act (715* d) RE: 2007 Ewan MacColl Bio - Class Act 29 Dec 19


I have made this point often on Mudcat but there is an error in the above article by Peggy.

The Ballads and Blues Club WAS NOT LATER KNOWN as the Singers Club.

Ewan and Peggy departed from the Ballads and Blues Club in 1961. They opened up a new club which they ran and called it The Singers Club.

The Ballads and Blues Club continued until May 1965.

The decision was NOT made by members of the Ballads and Blues club.
I was there at the time when Ewan refused to allow Lisa Turner to sing an American song. He did NOT ask us.

I should also remind people that Peggy had been teaching many of us how to play the five string banjo and the guitar. Both very common in traditional British folk song of course.
