TRIB­UTE Blood and Roses – the songs of Ewan MacColl Sal­ford-born Ewan MacColl (right) was one of Bri­tish folk’s rab­ble and rebel rousers, and through­out his life he courted con­tro­versy as well as writ­ing un­for­get­table songs such as Dirty Old Town and The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. This cen­te­nary con­cert makes its Ir­ish de­but, and fea­tures MacColl’s wife (Peggy Seeger), two of his sons (Calum and Neill - see in­ter­view, cen­tre pages), Bri­tish folk roy­alty (Martin Carthy and his daugh­ter, El­iza) and ju­di­cious Ir­ish in­put (Declan O’Rourke).
