9781907676178: At Hame Wi' Freedom: Essays on Hamish Henderson and the Scottish Folk Revival

At Hame Wi’ Freedom marks the tenth anniversary of Hamish Henderson’s death in 2002. It is the third book of a loose trilogy: Borne on the Carrying Stream (Grace Note Publications, 2010), followed by ‘Tis Sixty Years Since (Grace Note Publications, 2011) – all revolving around the life and legacy of Hamish Henderson and the Scottish Folk Revival he did so much to inspire and sustain.

At Hame wi’ Freedom focuses on Hamish Henderson’s involvement in the revival, his association with Perthshire and the North-East, the emergence of his poetic voice, and his political activism.

It also features Pino Mereu’s poetic evocation of the Anzio (Beachhead) Pipe Band and the 2011 Hamish Henderson Memorial Lecture by Owen Dudley Edwards. Further contributions are from Eberhard Bort, Maurice Fleming, Fred Freeman, George Gunn, Tom Hubbard, Alison McMorland, Ewan McVicar, Hayden Murphy and Belle Stewart.

Praise for At Hame Wi' Freedom

HAMISH Henderson, poet, folklorist and genial patriarch of the Scottish folk ­revival, and Pink Floyd, iconoclasts of English psychedelia, might seem to ­offer little in common.

Yet in At Hame Wi’ Freedom, the third of a trilogy of essay collections celebrating Henderson’s work, Pino Mereu’s poem sequence Anzio Pipe Band is dedicated not only to Henderson’s memory, but to that of Eric Waters, father of Pink Floyd founder member Roger Waters. Waters Snr, like Mereu’s father, died during the Battle of Anzio in 1944.

At Anzio, Henderson formed a morale-boosting pipe band which entered Rome with the triumphant Allied forces. Mereu’s poem in Italian, influenced by Henderson’s Elegies For The Dead In Cyrenaica as well as by Pink Floyd’s Final Cut, is accompanied by a Scots translation from Tom Hubbard.

Such unlikely connections come as no surprise in a book, edited by Eberhard Bort, ­containing some wonderfully circuitous discourses. None more so than Owen Dudley Edwards’s lecture, ostensibly titled Sectarian Songs, which before getting to grips with The Ould Orange Flute, ­recounts how Henderson ­persuaded the future PM ­Gordon Brown of the importance of Antonio Gramsci, the Italian revolutionary writer.

Ten years on from Henderson’s death, these essays reflect the sometimes bewildering variousness of the man, remembered with affection by poet Hayden Murphy, while accordionist Jim Bainbridge recalls a never-to-be forgotten visit to an early Blairgowrie festival. Alison McMorland’s essay on the Fetterangus Stewarts taps into Henderson’s championing of the Travellers as tradition-bearers, while George Gunn and Fred Freeman deal with his fluidity of language and the place of ­poets in general.

Maurice Fleming, born in the same road in Blairgowrie as Henderson, gives an insightful picture of the Perthshire which shaped the man and where, on the slopes of Ben Gulabin, overlooking his Glenshee birthplace, his ashes were scattered.

About the Author:

Eberhard 'Paddy' Bort studied at Tübingen University and has worked at Trinity College, Dublin, the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington and, since 1995, at the University of Edinburgh, where he is the Academic Coordinator of the Institute of Governance.

A lifelong folkie, Paddy is the founder of the Wee Folk Club at the Royal Oak pub in Edinburgh, and has been involved in running Edinburgh Folk Club for more than a decade. As its Chair, he introduced the Carrying Stream Festival in 2002, an annual celebration of the life and legacy of Scotland's greatest folklorist, Hamish Henderson (1919-2002). He also acts as a board member of the Hamish Henderson Archive Trust.

For his sins, Paddy is also organising the live music for The Phoenix and its Inselfolk Festival in Lauffen (Germany).
