GEORDIE MCINTYRE is a Glaswegian of Highland and Irish descent, his lifetime involvement in song, ballad and poetry is reflected in his singing, collecting and songwriting.

ALISON McMORLAND came to wider public notice in the early 1970′s and since then has been active as a collector, performer, teacher editor and publisher. Not least has been her single-minded commitment to developing the traditional arts within the community both in England and in the last decade in Scotland.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
