Alistair Hulett, 1951-2010

With great sadness I relay the news that Alistair Hulett passed away on Thursday 28 January (Friday 29 January, Sydney time) in Southern General Hospital, Glasgow.

Alistair died peacefully following a brief illness.

He had recently returned to Glasgow after several months working in Australia, during which time he played several shows across the country.

Alistair leaves behind an incredible legacy; a lifetime given to playing music, writing songs and actively engaging in political struggles.

All recordings by Roaring Jack, Alistair Hulett, Alistair Hulett and Dave Swarbrick and the Malkies are well worth acquiring. Many of Alistair's own songs have been taken on board by other artists.

Alistair's funeral will be held at Linn Crematorium in Lainshaw Drive on Friday 5 Feb at 1:30pm, with a reception afterwards.

Alistair Hulett, the man and his music will not be forgotten.
