Thread Name: Seeking info on Samuel Charters
Subject: Samuel Charters in Scotland 1960
I read (in Michael Gray's book about Blind Willie McTell) a passing reference to American musicologist Samuel Charters spending much of the year 1960 in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. I found another passing reference elsewhere to Charters having been at the Edinburgh Festival that year. Does anybody know anything more about Charters' time in Scotland in 1960 - why he was there, with whom was he spending time (perhaps even with Hamish Henderson?). Thanks.
