John MacKenzie Foul-mouthed Folkies (118* d) RE: Foul-mouthed Folkies 08 Jun 20


In about 1960 I heard Peggy Seeger swearing in the Green Room at Hamilton Folk Club, in the days when Tommy Kearney used to run it. Now I was brought up around men who used swear words like punctuation, but women swearing was a different thing, it wasn't common, but the women who did it were considered to be so. It put me off Peggy, and to this day, I still hate to hear women curse and swear, just a bit old fashioned I suppose. Last time I worked in an office which was about 13 years ago, the girls in there were just as bad as the men for swearing, I hated it.
