Remembering the Life and Legacy of Alistair Hulett

Alistair Hulett was a singer, songwriter, international socialist and revolutionary. He was a kind, gentle man who was committed to fighting for a better world, a world based on the principles of justice, equality, love and respect for all of humanity. The world was a better place for knowing him and is a sadder place for his loss. He left a great legacy in his music that will continue to bring inspiration to many who, like him, believe a better world was possible.

The site proudly continues the legacy in the form of his writing, recordings and the widespread influence he had through his activism on behalf of many social justice causes. The mission of the Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust (UK), and the Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund (AUS) is to help to promote social justice and equality through music and struggle.

This song and others are available to download or purchase on compact disc in the Alistair Hulett Shop. Clothing, tea towels and tote bags are also available.

The Gallows Rant, September 2013

Welcome to the latest edition of The Gallows Rant, the sporadic newsletter first started by the late Alistair Hulett and now dedicated to ongoing news about his music from the Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust (UK) and the Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund (Aus).

Glasgow has a proud tradition of producing and raising men and women who are fiercely proud of their roots, never afraid to stand up for what they believe in, regardless of the costs.

In a set that was to enthral and delight, Hulett reminded and taught us in both story and song how our forbearers not only stood proud, but also stood shoulder to shoulder with one another against injustice.

From Partick Folk Fest, November 2004
