“My function is not to reassure people. I want to make them uncomfortable. To send them out of the place arguing and talking.” – Ewan MacColl
Welcome to the official Ewan MacColl website, created and curated by his family. It’s still a work in progress but we will be adding to and updating it over the coming months. We hope you’ll find everything that you need somewhere within these pages but if not, please use the Contact page or the Press page and we’ll do our best to help.
2015 marked Ewan’s centenary, with a number of concerts, new records and events that took place throughout the year. 2016 will see more events. The Centenary page provides information about these and the Live page contains links to upcoming concerts as well as previous ones. Please sign up to the mailing list on the right hand side of the page and we will keep you posted on news as it comes in.

“I have loved and been loved. I love and am loved. I have been engaged throughout my life in work that I love. I wanted to write plays and I did so. I wanted to work in a theatre which I helped to create and I did so. I wanted to write songs and sing and I have done that too. How many people are given the chance of fulfilling their desires?” – Ewan MacColl
