"My Jo" but they would be unlikely to be sung in the middle of an average folk club night"
That may be true - I believe it to be a pity if it is
WE hared it regularly because Ewan sang it whenever he felt like it - I can never remember anybody protesting or walking out in disgust - but The Singers' was a serious folk club and recognised as such, which is why we ot loads of young students from he States I'm not suggesting for a minute that singers should nip down to their local Care Home to entertain the residents with these songs but I do belive we should ask ourselves is it us or them that have the problems
I'e told the story far too often, but I remember being told by Ewan how, when he first sang long ballads in public he worried about "putting the audience off"
He used to sing 'Gil Morris in two halved until an irate regular told him, "it's like waiting for the other shoe to drop"
It transpired he was far more worried about long ballads than they were
