Subject: RE: Hamish Imlach (1940-1996)-info, songs, etc.
I was looking for the lyrics to what I called "The Ballad of Invertoddie" by Hamish Imlach, and discovered this thread. Thank you all for keeping Hamish's memory alive. I was fortunate enough to have known Hamish in the early 70s, he had dinner in my house, and I performed on more than one stage with him.
He was a larger than life character, but he always laughed at life and himself, and lived life on his terms. I was deeply saddened by passing, there's a hole in the folk world where Hamish once stood, but as long as good folks such as yourselves keep his memory alive, he'll always be with us, in story and song.
