Ewan MacColl

New WCML webpage

The Ewan MacColl wing of the Working Class Movement Library website is now open and can be entered at www.wcml.org.uk/em/timeline.html.

Ewan MacColl will be known to most people as a songwriter, and as a singer, but he was also of significant influence in the worlds of theatre and radio broadcasting. He was a committed socialist all his life and his political sensibilities underpinned all his creative activities.

Ewan MacColl was Salford born and bred and, in the early 1930's, a political comrade of Eddie Frow (co-founder of the WCML). The Library's holdings include material from all aspects of Ewan's political and cultural life. These pages are an exploration, in greater or lesser depth, of that material.
