Happy Birthday!

"Seumas Mor"

The great
Hamish Henderson

was born

11/11/1919
(d. March 8, 2002)

Folklorist, poet, activist, inspiration.

What can one say? To me, Hamish was a pleasure to be in the same room with, whatever was going on.

"He was celebrated as one of the most extraordinary cultural forces in Scottish life."
        The Guardian, 9 March, 2002

"I think I've sung every song you ever wrote and I'll keep singing them. You live on in the generation you taught, fostered, argued with, inspired"
