About Hamish Henderson
His work there as a song collector provided a major catalyst for the Scottish Folk Revival. His many writings, for both academic and non-academic audiences, displayed a keen and deep appreciation of internationalism, foreign literature and people's culture. In his promotion of folk culture, he also showed great relish for intellectual sparring.
Particularly celebrated is his 'flyting' with the 'obdurately anti-folksong' Hugh MacDiarmid in the pages of The Scotsman in As a political activist, he played a major role in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the anti-Apartheid struggle, and wrote extensively on land rights. These are all now part of the folk tradition themselves. Login with your institution.
