Part of Scotland’s Revival: The Hamish Henderson Summer School

Folklorist, poet, songmaker and educator Hamish Henderson has been at
the heart of radical change in Scotland. In his centenary year, TRACS
looks at Scotland today through the legacy and continuing impact of his
multifaceted personality, described as the founding father of Scotland’s
twentieth century folk renaissance. TRACS Summer School brings together
experts, artists and activists, often, like Hamish, in the same person.
