Tartan Details - Hamish Henderson Commemorative

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Hamish Henderson Commemorative" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 12617
Designer: Breacan Caledonia
Tartan date: 26/06/2016
Registration date: 18 September 2019
Category: Commemorative
Registration notes: The Hamish Matters Committee commissioned this tartan to commemorate Hamish Henderson (1919 – 2002) celebrating the centenary of his birth and his connections with Blairgowrie. Hamish Henderson was a Scottish poet, songwriter, communist, soldier and intellectual. The Hamish Matters Festival, held every year in Blairgowrie, remembers this important man through various folk concerts and activities throughout November. Hamish was an avid collector of stories and poems, from local folklore to the sound of the Travellers in Blairgowrie and East Perthshire. The colours: graphite greys, silvers and black represent the penmanship and recordings of this remarkable man; browns and golden hues represent Hamish's favourite tipple; the greens are a nod to the Henderson tartans and the raspberry red is to represent the berry fields when Hamish recorded the famous Belle Stewart and the song "The Berry Fields o Blair".
