Salford Choral Society has 130 members, performs to professional standards and is open for anyone to join. Its top showcase is the annual Christmas Concert, which this year features festive music by Mendelssohn, Berlioz, Bach and Handel, as well as traditional carols and, what should be a rousing rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus complete with audience participation.

The evening, at the Royal Northern College of Music, is presented by David Walton, who will add poignant and amusing readings, while the music and choir will be conducted by Matthew Hamilton.

"I always look forward to the Christmas Concert" says Kathy McNaughton, Secretary of Salford Choral "It really starts the celebrations for me with something for all the family - music from the choir, favourite carols for everyone, and some of David's stories have us rolling in the aisles."

TUSC TO STAND TWO ANTI-AUSTERITY CANDIDATES IN SALFORD

"I'm just a normal mum and someone has to fight for our kids. There's nobody else that can do it for us..." Noreen Bailey

As the anti-austerity Syrza pary swept to power in Greece yesterday, here in Salford the anti-austerity TUSC – Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition – announced that it is standing two candidates in Salford.

Trade union activist Steven North will be standing in Worsley and Eccles South, while Noreen Bailey, who has led the fight against cuts to transport for disabled adults, will be standing in Salford and Eccles. TUSC is also to stand in fifteen of the twenty wards at the local elections in May.

THE LEGACY OF SALFORD ICON EWAN MACCOLL

Star date: 25th January 2015  

EWAN MACCOLL – A SALFORD TRIBUTE

PART 3: THE CENTENARY LEGACY

"If you don't fight back they've succeeded in dehumanising you..." Ewan MacColl

One hundred years after the birth of Ewan MacColl, what is the legacy of the Salford icon? His traditionalist folk ballads and love songs, classic as some are, almost belong to a bygone era; his agitprop plays were of a bygone moment and the Communist Party to which he belonged is almost extinct in this country.

So what is Ewan MacColl's legacy? He was a Salford fighter.

SALFORD ICON EWAN MACCOLL AND THE DIRTY OLD TOWN

Star date: 25th January 2015  

EWAN MACCOLL – A SALFORD TRIBUTE

PART 2: DIRTY OLD TOWN

Ewan MacColl perceived his home town Salford with a mixture of "love and hate". And he detested what Salford Council had done to the city... `cheap ...nasty...nothing but the worst for the working classes'.

Here, Ewan's third wife, Peggy Seeger, gives a unique insight into his views on Salford and those, like The Pogues, who, he reckoned, had wrecked Dirty Old Town. We also print the missing verse of that song. Plus did Salford Council really make him change the line from `Smelled the spring on the Salford wind'?

EWAN MACCOLL AND HIS LEGACY – A SALFORD TRIBUTE

PART 1

Ewan MacColl, born in Lower Broughton 25th January 1915, is world famous for creating working class songs, plays, poems and protest. In this special Salford Star centenary celebration, split into three parts, we have a bit of everything – from the missing verse of Dirty Old Town to Peggy Seegar's recollections of her husband's attitude to Salford.

However, an equally fitting tribute showcases his attitude towards life – which, in these times of austerity and cuts, has much to offer a new generation. Ladies and gentlemen of Salford we give you the one and only Ewan MacColl...
