Jimmie MacGregor (b. 10 March 1930, Springburn, Glasgow, Scotland)
Jimmie came from a working class family in Glasgow. He studied at the Glasgow School of Art, and worked as an art teacher and studio potter. His interest in folk music began in the mid 50's. House parties were very popular at the time, and Jimmie regularly attended. His first musical influences included Burl Ives, Josh White and Ewan MacColl. Starting in 1956, he often hitchhiked to London to visit the folk clubs, eventually settling there around 1958. Jimmie briefly joined the Chas McDevvitt Skiffle Group, made a number of solo appearances, and was a member of the Steve Benbow Folk Four and The City Ramblers before meeting up with Robin Hall. Jimmie celebrates his 73rd birthday this year. All the best, Jimmie.
