Thread Name: radio 4 how folk songs should be sung
Subject: RE: radio 4 how folk songs should be sung
I think Paula will touch on Theatre, but even with 2 hours at our disposal, we are going to have to cut a great deal out.
We have very little by way of live recordings of people talking about his theatre work, we recorded Ewan and Gerry Raffles talking about their work in Theatre Workshop and John Arden made a contribution (all at Ewan's 70th symposium), but I have yet to check the for quality - we'll see.
On the subject - I'm looking for a couple of references to Ewan if anybody has any trace of them
Shaw once described him as "the most promising talnt on the British stage today. apart from myself" - wonder if anybody knows where and when?
Also, MacColl's name appears in Sean O'Casey's Collected Letters - Pat wrote the quote down, but we have no reference to it's source.
