Writeidea Festival: Mike Heron - Tuning into the 1960s

Synopsis

Mike Heron, founder member of The Incredible String Band, writes vividly of his formative years in dour, Presbyterian Edinburgh. Armed with a love of Buddy Holly, Fats Domino and Hungarian folk music, he plays in school cloakrooms, discovers the joy of a folk audience, starts writing songs, tries to talk to girls and wishes he was a Beatnik, all while training as a reluctant accountant. When asked to join Robin Williamson and Clive Palmer, The Incredible String Band are formed - and their wildly innovative, astounding music became indelibly linked with the late 60s.
