Spotlight on… Hamish Henderson
November 2019 marks 100 years since the birth of Hamish Henderson who, over the course of half a century, contributed thousands of interviews and field recordings to the School of Scottish Studies Archives. Highly active as a poet, folklorist, and public intellectual, Hamish’s own songs became a foundation for the ongoing folk revival, and continue to be performed today.
