Thread Name: Hamish Imlach (1940-1996)-info, songs, etc.
Subject: RE: hamish imlach
Hamish Imlach was one of the founders of the Folk Revival in Scotland, a raconteur who taught Billy Connolly, a singer who taught Christie Moore, a blues guitarist who taught John Martyn. He died, much lamented, a couple of years ago. I helped him write his hilarious autobiography of a life on the singing roads of Europe, called COD LIVER OIL AND THE ORANGE JUICE, but we fell out with the publishers and the book is out of print. I could maybe find and post the obituaries I wrote for a couple of our national papers - I'll have a go.
