The divisions in definition between traditional singer and revivalist are sterile
when applied to Jimmy Hutchison.
All singers have to learn songs from sources other than on their mother's knee and when presented with a good song Jimmy will learn it,
adapt it, then reproduce it as though it has been transferred to him via his mother's milk. In the singing of Jimmy Hutchison you may
hear material previously sung by the giants of the Scottish tradition such as Jeanie Robertson and Jimmy McBeath, along with songs
from lesser knowns such as the London Irishman, Mike Smythe and the Canadian, Stan Rogers. All their influences are there."
