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 is possible.A CD is currently in preparation of recordings made by Alistair, Finlay and Jimmy of The Songs of Ewan MacColl for release in Autumn 2015.
