Biography: Kirsty Anna MacColl was born in Croydon, South London on 10th October 1959. Her father was the legendary folk singer Ewan MacColl, though she grew up seeing him only at weekends, being raised by her dancer & choreographer mother, Jean Newlove along with brother Hamish.
Being older, it was Hamish’s record collection which the young Kirsty commandeered, to immerse herself in the sounds of the Beach Boys and Neil Young, which she later credited with inspiring her love of harmonies and songwriting skills. [Read Ms. MacColl’s full bio via KirstyMacColl.com]
