Thread Name: What did you do in the war, Ewan?
Subject: RE: Folklore: What did you do in the war, Ewan?
All very laudable, Jim - but the point of this thread isn't to knock EM, much less dance on his grave, rather to look into the folklore surrounding him. He is celebrity figure about whom stories are told, and in the name of Folklore I thought it was worth a thread.

The OP is a simple improvising musician, storyteller & ballad singer who just gets on with the business of improvising music, telling stories & singing ballads. He has no agenda other than to celebrate the diverse wonders of his personal cultural heritage in the sure hope others are doing so too. He also couldn't give a stuff about assisting Folk Music to survive because he is of the knowledge that wherever there are Folk there will be Folk Music.
