Alistair Hulett & Dave Swarbrick (from the UK) present:
The ‘hidden history’ of Glasgow in words and music
Stone Gallery on Oxford (Paddington Uniting Church)
For their third studio collaboration, Alistair Hulett and Dave Swarbrick focus on a workers’ revolt in the city of Glasgow that rocked the government of the day. Red Clydeside broke out in response to the Declaration Of War in 1914. Its leader, John Maclean, was twice sentenced to penal servitude and twice released early due to enormous public protest. Eventually the rulers of Britain sent troops and tanks into Glasgow in January 1919 to prevent a full blown revolution they feared could engulf the entire country.
