Red Clydeside got it’s name from the struggle by the workers in Glasgow nearly a century ago after 100,000 protestors raised the red flag in George Square for the right to work for a fair wage – some things never change. Unfortunately, we are still looking for the right to work for a fair wage! The struggle still goes on, not least through the work of the late singer-songwriter and campaigner Alistair Hulett who’s songs from 2002 Red Clydeside album with Dave Swarbrick are performed by the great friends of Alistair – political songwriter Roy Bailey, rising star Ewan McLennan, The Laggan co-founder Arthur Johnstone singer-songwriter Karine Polwart and Gavin Livingstone.
Please visit The Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund website and find out more about this most excellent man and the Trust that continues in his name.
