Jim Carroll uk folk clubs high standard (356* d) RE: uk folk clubs high standard 06 May 19

Erica Wagner had nothing to do with the writing of the book so her qualifications are irrelevant
She was just repeating the gossip - from someone who had a huge chip on her shoulder because either MacColl or Lloydonce described her stage performance as "bucolic" (I seem to remember that was Berty anyway
Stories such as these proliferate - over the thirty years I had dealings with the club I never once saw MacColl (or anybody) behave in the manner described - nor do I recall a situation in which such behaviour would have been tolerated without widely reported criticism
It to the demise of MacColl for this particular urban myth to surface
