Hamish Henderson gallery

Hamish Henderson was once in my home for dinner conversing and singing old Italian Partisan songs to my Italian mother in law who was visiting us in edinburgh. Hamish had been during the war a British intelligence officer in Italy. My mother in law was surprised to see Hamish singings songs that she had learned during the war and was thrilled with the experience. Hamish loved Antonio Gramsci. He had been one of the first to translate his work from Italian into English. Hamish, the poet, the song collector, and composer of Freedom Come all-ye was a Socialist and a true internationalist. We shared a platform several times. In 1986 I asked him if he could help me to find a record company to record my songs and he did. Only in 1989, however, I could record my songs. I asked him if he could write a few words about my record Debo Cantar Bonito and he ended up writing 3 pages full of beautiful things.
