I tend to agree, but would feel you could mention Pete Seeger, and A L Lloyd in the same category.
P Seeger may not have been as prolific or as good a songwriter, but as a populariser and performer he reached more people. Lloyds contribution must be on a par. taking into consideration Berts influence on revival singers,
and then evenjust as important is peggy seeger., without whom MacColl would not have been able to have done the radio ballds.
