Hamish Henderson is considered to be one of the most important of the 20th century's folk song collectors.

Songs, ballads and a story from The School of Scottish Studies archives.

"All captured on tape between 1952 and 1958 by the leading character (he only recently passed away) in the post-war Edinburgh University department which houses a national archive of folk song and recorded tales. Copious notes, fragments of Hamish himself bantering with the performers, and nearly two score authentic Scots gems... Essential listening for anyone interested in the Scottish identity." (Norman Chalmers, Scotland on Sunday)

"It would be a great irony if your readers assumed that I did not want my recordings of Scots folksongs to be broadcast. On the contrary, I believe that the broadcasting of them would be an event of great cultural significance in Scotland." (Hamish Henderson, in a letter to The Scotsman in 1953)
